23 year old female charged with rape of 14 year old boy

Comment are off

We often here cases of men raping women but it is quite an unusual situation where a male person reports having been raped by a female, though it does happen.

Recent reports are that a 23 year old female had a forceful sexual intercourse with a 14 year old boy in Belmopan, and was recently charged.

That female has been identified as Miss Selma Marquita Ortiz.  She has been charged, but was granted bail recently. 

This report was made to us on the eighteenth of September, and we acted on it, and the person has since been charged and taken to court.”


On December 12 2013, the rape bill, also known as Amendment 2 to the Criminal Code, was brought before the House of Representatives for it’s final reading. The bill was introduced in September of that year which  aimed at providing equal protection for boys and girls against sexual abuse. Prior to the new law, the charge would be aggravated assault of an indecent nature.

“Because we could not determine if it occurred before the new law was put in place in February, or after, we were advised to charge for Aggravated Assault of an Indecent Nature.”


23 year old Selma Ortiz was offered bail, but failed to meet it.
