SOCA ARTISTE Kimba Sorzano was yesterday placed on bail for charges of attempted rape and grievous sexual assault.
Sorzano, 32, of Arima, faced the allegations before Point Fortin magistrate Alicia Chankar.
The offences allegedly occurred last February in Point Fortin. Sorzano was arrested earlier this week and charged by Constable Walker.
The matters were prosecuted by Sgt Manolal. Sorzano was represented by attorney Kelston Pope.
Chankar placed the artiste on $85,000 bail with the condition that he has no contact and stays 100 metres away from the alleged victim. He is also to surrender his passport and report to the Arima Police Station twice a week.
The cases were adjourned to June 18.
In a release concerning the “Over You” singer, Pope said, “My client maintains his innocence, he will trust the process and his legal team and will speak freely after his vindication of the charges brought against him. These matters are now before the court and the rule of sub judice will be observed. We will make no further comment at this time.”
