JLS Ortise ‘sex assault’ probe hell
FORMER JLS singer Oritsé Williams has been rebailed by police following his arrest on suspicion of rape following a gig.
The former boyband star ( above )was arrested at a hotel in Wolverhampton on December 2 having appeared at Gorgeous nightclub.
He was initially bailed until February pending further enquiries and has now been rebailed until April 28.
Williams’s arrest followed allegations of rape and sexual assault made by a 20-year-old woman who was said to be a fan of his and had joined him at a hotel, according to reports.
Williams has not been charged with any offence. After the allegations emerged his management issued a statement in which he denied any wrongdoing.
The statement read: “Oritsé denies the allegations against him. The matter is in the hands of the police.”
A 29-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault at the same time as Williams has also been rebailed until the same date. QUEEN of pop Madonna suffers from – a fear of thunder KINKY SEX OFFER: Sharon Kerr is also known as Juicy Lucy Love A judge heard how Mr Steven was repeatedly struck with a machete as his attackers spoke about ‘chopping him up’. Prosecutor Shanti Maguire said the victim feared he was going to die as he desperately banged on a window for help. His ordeal only ended when the pair fled before wounded Mr Steven collapsed on the street. Details of the attack emerged as Dalton, 33, and Harrison, 23, appeared at the High Court in Glasgow. Mr Steven travelled from his home in Troon, Ayrshire, to Kerr’s flat. They had known each other for around four years. Miss Maguire told the court: “A discussion took place with regard to services which were to be provided to him.” The trio were said to have ‘induced’ Mr Steven to attend the flat after pretending they had ‘access to a cement truck’ as well as ‘cement mix to pour over him’.
After arriving, Mr Steven went with Kerr to a cash machine to withdraw £150 before returning to the flat.
Kerr then suddenly left the victim alone with a woman called ‘ Michelle’. Soon after, Dalton and Harrison turned up.
‘Michelle’ then left the room before the two thugs turned on Mr Steven.
Miss Maguire said Dalton initially struck him on the shoulder with a machete. The victim noticed Harrison had a knife.
The men chased Mr Steven around the flat, repeatedly stabbing and slashing him with their weapons.
The two men discussed ‘chopping him up’ before taking his bank cards.
The court heard Mr Steven suffered ‘multiple’ wounds to his hands, ear, cheek, chest and back.
He also had a collapsed lung which put his life in danger. He spent around 10 days in hospital before being able to leave.
The court heard he has lost ‘complete use’ of his left thumb and has been left scarred for life. A STUDY IN POPULARITY: Sherlock came first in global poll SLASHER: Craig Dalton
Miss Maguire said the ordeal has had a ‘lasting impact’ on the victim.
Dalton and Harrison had originally been accused of attempted murder before prosecutors accepted their pleas to the reduced charge.
Kerr also faced the same allegation. But, instead, she had guilty pleas accepted to stealing £400 from Mr Steven.
Kerr’s bail was continued. She will be sentenced next month along with Dalton and Harrison, who were both remanded in custody. 1. Sherlock 29.7 2. The Doctor 17.6 3. Luther 12.4 4.
