A Murray’s Village man who is currently on bail in connection with a 2018 rape charge was, on Monday, brought before the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court on two additional, unrelated rape charges.

Castion “Cuz” Stapleton, 31, is charged with two counts of rape, reportedly committed on a 14-year-old girl on Feb. 21, at Kingstown Park.

He was not allowed to plead to the indictable charges.

He is further charged that on Feb. 21, at Kingstown Park, he indecently assaulted the virtual complainant, she being a girl under the age of 15.

The prosecution objected to bail, telling the court that Stapleton was on bail in connection with matters of a similar nature that are currently before the Family Court.

Senior Magistrate Rickie Burnett denied bail and transferred the matter to the Family Court for tomorrow, Tuesday.

Counsel Grant Connell represents the accused man.

In October 2018, police charged Stapleton with the rape of a 19-year-old secretary of Ottley Hall, an offence he allegedly committed on Oct. 18 that year.

  1. Every accused has the right to a defence in a court of law, but when someone not only has a past record of the same behavior and there are reliable witnesses to provide compelling evidence to prove guilt, no court should allow a tricky lawyer to manipulate the case to a point where the accused goes free or gets a reduced sentence that will allow them back onto the streets in a short time.
    When I was in law enforcement I remember sex offenders getting multiple cases dismissed because they had tricky lawyers. These lawyers, as we have seen in SVG as well, feel like they are “Gods” and are very happy with themselves because they are able to make spectators believe that the accused is an angel and the victim is the guilty party. When it is obvious that the accused is guilty, they try to at least have them back on the streets in a short time. Is this good or safe for Society?

  2. Wait, this man has a pending case and now this!. What irks me is when families are trying to hide him from the press. So all the victims always wrong and randomly accusing him? […]
    You could still love him because he is your family but please don’t condone him [alleged] behaviour by supporting his [alleged] nasty and evil ways.

    If found guilty, there are two ways to fix this problem – if you are a betting man: A, surgical castration with the scarlet “C” tattooed on his forehead with very permanent red ink, for all to see; or B, a front lobotomy.

    But if you are not a betting man, like me, then best to go with both.

    I almost stepped on my tongue when I nearly said, “to fix his problem.” The problem isn’t his, it is owned by his – ah, I managed to squeeze a “his” in – past and future victims. And her family. And the problem is irreparable, too. You know, long-term ownership. Just like the castration and lobotomy would be.

    And yes, “future victims,” because this depraved pervert likes it.
