Marco Tulio charges to be upgraded

PUP Orange Walk East Area Representative Marco Tulio Mendez will face more serious charges of child molestation. Back in February of this year, the member of the House of Representatives was arraigned on six countsof aggravated assault; four for one minor and two for the other minor. Now months later, the Director of Public Prosecution has found evidence for another charge with more serious consequences if found guilty.  Mendez was initially charged with indecent assault based on the claim that he allegedly touched the minors in a sexual manner. However, it is now being alleged that he actually attempted to have intercourse with one of the girls. With this new charge, the case would be moved to the Supreme Court.
