Don Creary arrives at the Half-WayTree Resident Magistrate's court on Friday. He will return on Thursday on a second rape charge.

Former Jamaica Labour Party councillor Don Creary has been charged with a second case of rape.

Creary, who is also a businessman was charged following a question and answer session today in the presence of his lawyer, Tom Tavares-Finson.

It's alleged that in June this year, Creary raped the 19-year-old woman at an apartment in Meadowbrook, St Andrew.

The woman reported the matter to investigators in July.

The 48-year-old former politician has denied the allegation.

It is reported that both Creary and the woman admitted to police investigators that they were in a relationship.

Last week, Creary was charged with another case of rape.
