34 year old Cristobal Gilharry played defense for the National A team for the CONCACAF Gold Cup tournament last year. The young football star is now on the defense again, but for an entirely different ball game, after having been charged for unlawful carnal knowledge.
On Monday December 15th, acting upon reports received on December 10th, police arrested and charged Cristobal Gilharry, a resident of Belize City, for allegedly having sexual intercourse with a 15 year old minor of Belmopan on November 21st earlier this year.
On Tuesday, 34 year old Gilharry appeared before Magistrate Aretha Ford at the Belmopan Magistrate’s Court, where he was read his charge. No plea was taken from him since it is an indictable offense. Cristobal Gilharry was remanded to the Belize Central Prison without bail.
His case now moves to the Supreme Court on March 3rd 2015, where he is to be represented by defense attorney Dickie Bradley.
