Elephant Man rape case pushed back until November 29th, 2013
Internationally-acclaimed Dancehall superstar, Elephant Man faces another delay in his ongoing rape case as the case file in relation to the matter is reportedly missing.
The ‘Energy God’ appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrates Court in Kingston Friday morning when the trial was expected to begin. However, the judge extended Elephant Man’s bail, ordering that he return to court on Nov. 29 after the prosecution conceded that the case fail against the deejay was nowhere to be found.
The matter has been postponed several times since it was originally due to commence in May of last year.
The charges of rape and grievous sexual assault against Elephant Man stems from an alleged incident at a St. Andrew residence in January 2012 involving a woman in her 30s.
The artist, whose real name is Oneil Bryan was arrested by detectives from the Centre for Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse (CISOCA) shortly after the woman reportedly filed a police report.
