Deva Bratt Granted Bail....
Dancehall star Deva Bratt was granted bail when he appeared in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate’s Court last week to answer charges of assault.
The deejay was granted bail to the sum of JM$150,000 after his lawyer argued that he is not at flight risk. As a condition of his bail, Deva Bratt will have to report to the Waterford police station daily. However, due to his upcoming tour obligations, the condition will take effect on July 12th.
Deva Bratt, whose real name is Sheldon Smith, was arrested last month and charged with indecent assault and assault occasioning bodily harm of two females.
According to reports, the artist took the two females to his home where he made sexual advances and was turned down. As a result, the two females were assaulted by the entertainer. One female was reportedly punched in the face, while the other complained that the deejay tried to push his hand down her pants.
This is the second charge of the same nature the deejay received. In 2008 he was charged with carnal abuse in a case involving a minor. He was, however, freed of those charge last year.
Deva Bratt is schedule to return to court in August.
