vlcsnap-2014-08-14-06h21m51s87Despite promising compensation, 22 year old Jorge Jimenez was taken to court on Wednesday, on a charge of damage to property. On August 12, he apparently broke the glass front door at the Belize City office of attorney and Belize Rural Central area representative Hon. Dolores Balderamos Garcia, on Queen Street as he was leaving. Mr Jimenez pleaded not guilty and told presiding Magistrate Herbert Panton that it was an accident and he spoke with Hon. Dolores, promising that he would compensate her for the value of the door, $275. She agreed, but still chose to press criminal charges. Jorge Jimenez was offered bail of $500 and returns to court on October 21.
