Steven Castillo charge with unlawful sexual intercourse

34-year-old Steven Castillo,  a driver for a paint store in Belize City, was charged with one count of unlawful sexual intercourse after he was caught in parked vehicle with a fifteen year old whose panties were off.  This morning, Castillo, who was unrepresented, appeared before Senior Magistrate Aretha Ford where he was arraigned.  It is alleged that on Tuesday, August 27, he had sexual intercourse with the minor. Due to the nature of the offense, no plea was taken from Castillo.  He was denied bail and remanded into custody at the Belize Central Prison. According to the report, officers were conducting a routine patrol in the city, when they came across the parked vehicle. Upon inspection of the vehicle, officers noticed Castillo acting suspiciously in the front seat while a half-dressed female was seated in the back seat.  Police believed that Castillo had just engaged in sexual intercourse with the minor.  As a result, officers arrested Castillo and notified the child’s parent of the incident. Additionally, Social Services were called and a doctor who examined the child certified the she was carnally known. Castillo’s case was adjourned to November 4, 2019.
