Entertainer George Nooks appeared in court on Friday (October 25) on charges of possession of cocaine and perverting the course of justice.
Nooks was charged a day earlier by the narcotics police following a ruling by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
Nooks, 57, was arrested on April 26, 2019 at a plaza in the Corporate Area where he was allegedly found in possession of cocaine.
The entertainer has denied the allegation and was subsequently released by the police and a form sent to Director of Public Prosecutions.
Nooks, who is represented by Christopher Townsend, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
He was offered bail in the sum of J$300,000 and is to return to court on January 13, 2021.
Nooks is best known for his 2001 hit God is Standing By.
