A man who tried for a free fondle of a woman’s rear now knows that nothing in life is free after he was sentenced to six months behind bars for Aggravated Assault of an Indecent Nature. A twenty-eight year old housewife told Police that on April twenty-first while she was in front of the Downtown Plaza on Albert Street, thirty-nine year old Fernando Tun touched her inappropriately on her rear, twice. She reported the matter and Tun was arrested and charged, but when he appeared in Court on April twelfth he was remanded because he could not provide the court with a proper address. On Monday, he reappeared in Court before Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazier and pleaded guilty to the charge of Aggravated Assault of an Indecent Nature, with the excuse that he only did it because he was under the influence. The charge carries a maximum sentence of three years, but Tun was sentenced to six months at the Belize Central Prison, with effect from Monday, April fifteenth.
