There seems to be more trouble brewing for the embattled P.U.P Orange Walk East Area Representative, Dr. Marco Tulio Mendez tonight. That is because information from the Director of Public Prosecutions, Sheryl Lyn Vidal indicates that Mendez will be additionally charged for the attempt to commit Carnal Knowledge. Our friends at Channel 7 spoke to Vidal today who confirmed to them that months after Mendez was arraigned, the investigation file was finally sent to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions. After her perusal, she found evidence for another charge that the officers did not lay against Mendez. Vidal said and we quote “one of the teenagers reported details more serious than that. The file shows that there is evidence for the attempt to commit Carnal Knowledge charge. The incident allegedly dates back to 2009.
We tried on many attempts to contact his Attorney Dickie Bradley today to confirm this information but our efforts have been futile up to news time. For context, 2 teenaged girls have accused him of inappropriate sexual contact which happened years before the age of consent. Since the report, Mendez has been charged with several counts of Aggravated Assault of an indecent nature. As we told you on Monday at his adjournment court appearance, his Attorney expressed that the matter will be dealt with in the Supreme Court and this additional charge could be damning. It is not yet known if the additional charge will be levied upon Mendez before the date set for his reappearance in court or on that same day. We’ll keep following this story for our subsequent newscast.
