The People’s United Party’s Orange Walk East Area Representative Doctor Marco Tulio Mendez was scheduled to be back in court today after being arraigned on six charges stemming from allegations made by a pair of minors. Viewers may recall that Mendez was arraigned in Orange Walk Town before magistrate Murlene Moody on February third where he was read a list of counts, including aggravated assault of an indecent nature and common assault. Those allegations stem as far back as 2005.
And since the allegations surfaced, Mendez has gone on record to state that his innocence will be proven in court. Today, the session was adjourned for Monday August 17th since there was no Magistrate available. Reports also suggest that an additional charge of attempted carnal knowledge will be levied against Mendez by orders of the DPP. It is yet unknown if that charge will be issued upon Mendez at his next court date.
