Ryan Swift & common-law wife charged for assaulting City Council messenger

BELIZE CITY, Wed. May 30, 2012

A common-law couple, Ryan Swift, 49 and Honduran national Lauren Vanessa Rosales, 27, were both charged with wounding when they appeared today in the #2 Magistrates Court.

They pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Swift, a businessman of 35 Nargusta Street, was offered a bail of $2,000.

But Rosales, who admitted in Court that she entered Belize illegally from Guatemala, was denied bail because she was deemed a flight risk. Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser remanded her into custody until June 14.

The remand was despite pleas from Swift who said he just fell in love and he did not ask Rosales how she came to Belize. Swift asked the Court for 2 weeks to straighten out her immigration status in Belize.

The complainant, Errol White, 55, a.k.a. “Pepes”, a messenger for Belize City Council, reported to the Police that he was at Swift’s home when a misunderstanding ensured. White and Swift are cousins.

White said during the misunderstanding, Swift and Rosales assaulted him. He told police that Swift used a shovel while Rosales stoned him with a pint bottle that struck his forehead and caused a wound.

Because she admitted her illegal status in Court, Rosales may very well face charges related to immigration offences.
