Capleton Bail Extended Next Rape Case Hearing Set For July


Capleton had his bail extended when he appeared in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court last Thursday.

The reggae/dancehall legend is currently out on a $250,000 bail while he awaits trial for a rape case. Capleton was arrested in May and charged with rape after a female filed a police report claiming that the entertainer sexually assaulted her at a hotel in Kingston on April 28. The female claimed that Capleton hired her to groom his hair at a hotel in Kingston, but when she went, he forced her to have sex with him.

Capleton denied the allegations and some sources say the female victim was trying to extort money from the reggae singer. He also filed a police report but the female complainant was never charged with a crime.

Capleton returns to court on July 13.
