The lawyer for former Jamaica Labour Party councillor Don Creary has dismissed as "a rumour" a claim that his client was taken home on the weekend while he should have been in jail.

There were reports that on the weekend, police personnel took the rape accused from his jail cell at the Constant Spring Police lock up to his St. Andrew house.

However, Creary's lawyer, Tom Tavares Finson, said the claim was just not true.

At the same time Tavares Finson confirmed that Creary is being transferred from the Constant Spring lock-up to the South Camp Juvenile Remand & Correctional Centre.

Tavares Finson explained that the police decided to move him because the popular businessman is getting too many visitors at Constant Spring.

Meanwhile, Creary was further remanded when he reappeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court today.

Resident Magistrate Simone Wolfe Reece denied him bail as the court was told that the police are investigating another matter involving the businessman.

He was ordered to return to court on Wednesday.

 

However, Creary’s co-accused, Shaneke Williams, was granted bail in the sum of $1.5 million.

She was ordered to report weekly to the Constant Spring Police Station and to surrender her travel documents.

A stop order was also placed against her.

Forty-eight-year-old Creary has been charged with rape while Williams is charged with aiding and abetting and sexual touching.
