Man charged with 13 counts of unlawful sexual intercourse

vlcsnap-2018-01-11-16h47m23s75852-year-old Jose Ardon was today slapped with 13 counts of unlawful sexual intercourse after allegedly having sex with a 15-year-old minor. The incidents started back in January of 2016, when the child was only 14.  Back then, police only charged Ardon with 2 counts of unlawful sexual intercourse, but further digging into the case has led police to levy more charges of the same offense against the accused. This morning, Ardon was brought to the Belize City Magistrate’s Court before Senior Magistrate Aretha Ford, where he was slapped with 11 more counts. No plea was taken for the eleven sexual charges that were read to him. Since Ardon was already out on Supreme Court bail on the old incident, he was allowed to go home. His next court date is set for February 12, 2018.
