Aggro Santos To Stand Trial For Double Rape Charges

Despite pleading not guilty, Santos will appear in court this August...

Brazilian-born rapper Aggro Santos will stand trial after pleading not guilty to two separate counts of rape.

Back in September last year, the Like U Like MC was charged with two different rape offences, after being accused of sexually assaulting one woman in Chichester and another in Somerset in 2010.

Aggro - real name Yuri Santos - appeared at a hearing at Chichester Crown Court yesterday (5th January) where he denied the charges.

The 23-year old, who has previously collaborated with Girls Aloud star Kimberley Walsh, wore a black shirt, white tie and waistcoat for the court appearance.

Another man, Tyrelle Ritchie, also faces one count of rape in Chichester on the same day as Santos' alleged offence.

Both the 2010 I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! contestant and Ritchie's trial will commence on 13th August and until then, the pair have been given conditional bail.
