Accused rapists granted bail

Posted: Saturday, August 17, 2019. 12:49 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Devin “DJ Perf” Peyrefitte, 24, and 21-year-old Denzel Usher are out on bail after a charge of rape laid against them earlier this week.

Their attorneys, Albertha Perez, and Emerita Anderson, made bail petitions on their behalf before Justice Herbert Lord yesterday. And, after hearing their submissions, as well as a response from Senior Crown Counsel Sheneiza Smith, Justice Lord granted them bail of $10,000 each.

As part of the conditions for the bail, they must surrender all their travel documents to the court, and can’t leave the jurisdiction without the court’s permission. Additionally, they must not interfere with their accuser or any of the prosecution’s possible witnesses in this case.

A 38-year-old woman reported to police that on Monday night, she was at a party in Belmopan. She alleges that Peyrefitte lured her into one of the bedrooms, then raped her. He then left and Usher allegedly entered and raped her a second time.

Both men deny the charges.
