Former Jamaica Labour Party councillor for the Castleton Division Don Creary and his alleged accomplice, Shaneke Williams, are to appear in court today in relation to rape allegations.

Their attorney, Tom Tavares-Finson, says he will be making a bail application when his clients appear in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court.

Creary is charged with rape while Williams is charged with aiding and abetting and sexual touching.

They were both arrested and charged on Tuesday.

Tavares Finson says his clients deny any wrongdoing.

The police say in 2013 Creary and Williams took a 15-year-old girl to an apartment in St Mary where she was allegedly given alcoholic beverages and sexually assaulted.

They further say following the incident the teen told her mother what happened and a report was made to the Police.

Subsequent investigations led to the arrest of the two.
