A carpenter facing rape charges was released on bail when he appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant in No. 2 District ‘A’ Criminal Court this morning.
Patrick Anderson Grimes of Odessa McClean Avenue, My Lord’s Hill, St Michael was not required to plead to the indictable charges.
It is alleged that on January 1, 2015, Grimes had sex with a complainant, knowing she did not give consent to sexual intercourse, or was reckless as to whether she consented.
He was charged with committing a similar offence between September 1 and December 21, 2015 against another complainant.
Grimes was also accused of unlawfully assaulting one of the complainants between the same period.
He was released on $10,000 bail with one surety and is scheduled to return to court on October 18.
