The two-time World Series winner is accused by the National District Attorney’s Office of allegedly having sexually assaulted a minor
The judge in charge of hearing the request for a measure of coercion filed by the Prosecutor’s Office of the National District, in the capital of the Dominican Republic, Lissa Veras, accepted a request for postponement made by the defense of the former Dominican Big leagues, Juan Encarnacion, so that your new lawyer has time to know the file and the accusations that are being made against your client.
This is the second postponement of the coercion hearing that takes place in the process, after last Sunday, the Dominican authorities, during the first hearing, made a request for postponement to carry out the corresponding interrogation of the minor to the one that allegedly the Dominican expelotero, Juan Encarnacion, would have sexually assaulted.
Additionally, the defense of Incarnation asked the judge of the Office of Permanent Attention of the National District who is aware of the coercion measure the opportunity to see the video of the interrogation that was carried out last Monday to the minor in Camára de Gesell (room used to conduct monitored interviews), indicating that the one most interested in the well-being of the minor is the former player, since it is his daughter.
Incarnation (45), is accused by the National District Prosecutor’s Office for allegedly having sexually assaulted a minor daughter during the month of May of this year. The mother of the minor denounced that Encarnación allegedly tried to sexually assault the girl last May, when the complaint was made. The former player will remain in custody at the Ciudad Nueva Palace of Justice until the next hearing is held.
The next hearing will be held on Friday, September 2 at nine in the morning (Dominican Republic time). During this stage of the process that is carried out against Incarnation, the guilt or innocence of the accused is not established, it is only discussed if the accusation has merits to be known before the judge of the merits and if the accused represents a danger of flight or destruction of evidence that could point to his guilt.
It is also recalled that for the request for a measure of coercion, the Attorney General of the National District, Rosalba Ramos, has confirmed that a sentence of one year of preventive detention is being sought against the expelotero and that he would not have the possibility, if the court understood correct to impose a measure of coercion, to go free on bail, for the type of crime that is imputed to him.
