Capleton is to return to the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on July 13. The popular entertainer who is facing a rape charge,
had his bail extend when his case was mentioned in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on Thursday.
King Shango, whose real name is Clifton Bailey, is out on $250,000 bail.
The prosecution was also ordered to make disclosure to the defence by next Thursday, June 21. Attorney Christopher Townsend is representing the entertainer.
Detectives assigned to the Centre for Investigation Sexual Offence and Child Abuse (CISOCA) arrested and charged the entertainer last month.
Reports from the police are that on Saturday, April 28 at about 11:20 a.m., the “Jah Jah City” singer whose real name is Clifton Bailey, reportedly hired a female hairdresser to groom his hair at a hotel in the New Kingston area. While at the hotel, it is reported that he forcibly had sexual intercourse with the female.
The matter was reported to the police and an investigation launched. Bailey was subsequently charged after a question and answer interview was conducted in the presence of his attorney.
