Devin Di Dakta’s bail extended… Returns to court on September 5

Dancehall entertainer Devin Di Dakta had his bail extended, when he appeared in the St Andrew Parish Court yesterday (Tues) to answer charges of sexual assault.

The 2015 winner of the Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall competition, pleaded not guilty to the charges and is set to return to court on September 5.

Investigators alleged that on January 18, Devin Di Dakta fondled a dancer at the Taboo nightclub in St. Andrew, owned by businessman Corey Todd. The complainant filed a report with the police on January 23.

Meanwhile, Businessman Corey Todd is set to stand trial on August 22 stemming from a separate incident involving Devin Di Dakta. It is alleged that in January, the entertainer was taken to the parking lot of the Taboo nightclub and beaten by several members of Todd’s security because of a song done by the artiste and perceived to be disrespectful to Todd.

Todd was reportedly pointed out during an identification parade. He pleaded not guilty to the assault charges when he appeared in court earlier this month.

He is facing charges of malicious destruction of property and assault occasioning bodily harm.
