American man accused of attempted rape
A 23-year-old man from Las Vegas has been charged with attempted rape.
Prosecutors say that Joseph Nicoletti attempted to rape a woman, 21, on March 15.
Nicoletti was not required to enter a plea when he appeared before Acting Deputy Chief Magistrate Subusola Swain.
He next returns to court on May 28.
He was remanded to prison as the magistrate lacks authority to consider bail for the offense.
However, Nicoletti can seek bail in the Supreme Court.
He is represented by Tonique Lewis.
