The singer Marcelo, from the country duo João Lucas and Marcelo, is being investigated, according to “G1”, by the Bahia Civil Police for sexual exploitation and favoring prostitution, crimes based on article 244 of the Child and Adolescent Statute.
The case fhi opened by the uncle of a young girl from 14, in the early hours of Friday, who filed a report of sexual abuse against the singer, claiming that Marcelo had committed sexual abuse on his niece in a hotel room in Barreiras (BA) , where the duo performed shortly before.
The girl, whose name was not revealed, confirmed to the delegate that she had gone to Marcelo's hotel room, where she remained for 40 minutes, but denied the abuse. According to the girl, on the spot, she would have exchanged caresses with the singer, who felt her breasts and buttocks. Then the young woman would have taken off her blouse only wearing a bra, when then the backwoodsman, after taking a shower, would have returned to the room only with a towel. The intimate caresses remained until the young woman left the singer's room for "insecurity." She said she had not had oral sex, nor maintained a relationship.
Still, the girl underwent a carnal conjunction examination at the Forensic Medical Institute (IML). The result should be published within 15 days.
The investigation, which has up to 30 days to complete the investigation and send it to the prosecutor, who is responsible for filing a complaint to bring it to trial, will still be based on review of hotel internal security videos and employee testimonials.
The duo traveled to Goiânia and should give evidence at the right time, according to the delegate Dr. Francisco Carlos de Sá, responsible for the case.
