Rap Sheet Roundup

For some concert promoters, music and misdeeds go hand in hand. 

A club promoter in Clearwater, Fla., was recently arrested for lewd and lascivious battery on a victim under 16 during an investigation into his work promoting teen parties at the city’s Cafe Charlie.

Leonard Bame was banned from throwing parties at the club after owners discovered illegal activity including drinking and drug use during events, according to the local WTSP-TV.

Authorities believe there may be more victims, WTSP reported.

Meanwhile in California, a Bollywood concert promoter was convicted of aggravated mayhem and conspiracy to commit mayhem for paying three men to assault and maim his ex-wife, the San Jose Mercury News reported. Rakesh Paul Singh reportedly faces a minimum of seven years to life in prison.

His sentencing is scheduled for June 2.

Finally, in Kingston, Jamaica, a trial date is yet to be determined for a dance club promoter accused of wrapping a sleeping patron in plastic and setting him on fire. The Jamaica Observer reported Kingston Public Hospital misplaced the complainant’s data in its system, which prevented the trial from being scheduled. Omari Riley was taken into custody until the medical record was made available, the paper said.
