vlcsnap-2013-12-30-18h13m27s152A 26-year-old man convicted himself in court today after he was accused of molesting a 5-year-old child in the city. Ian  McNab, who was unrepresented in court, appeared to be a bit disturbed but showed no remorse and had nothing to say on his behalf only that he was guilty of the crime.   This morning, he appeared before Magistrate Dale Cayetano where he was sentenced to three years imprisonment.  Allegations made against McNab are that on Friday, December 20, 2013, he molested a 5-year-old child at a home in Belize City.  Minutes after committing the act, the frightened child notified her father who acted right away but McNab managed to run away when the child’s father tried to confront him.  The 5-year-old child told her father that at about 3:30 p.m., that day, she was walking on the verandah, when she saw McNab coming up the stairway. He approached her and pushed his hand into her underwear and touched her on her private part.  After that, the child ran inside her house and told her father.
