Sexual Assault Suspect Released on $20K Bail

by | Aug 27, 2021

The case against the suspect was dismissed in fall 2021 and the matter was sealed. 

The Cranston man, 22, accused of first degree felony sexual assault was released on $20,000 surety bail Thursday, after spending more than two weeks at the ACI. He is accused of assaulting a woman in the parking lot for Blu on the Water early Sunday morning, Aug. 1. (Surety bail requires 10 percent up front, in this case $2,000.) 

District Court Judge Mary McCaffery also placed conditions on the man’s bail, that he be monitored for alcohol and substance abuse and surrender his passport. He is due back in court Sept. 7 for consideration of home confinement.

    It is incredibly unethical that this story has not been updated in over a year. Mr. Gershkoff was found to be innocent in this case based on surveillance footage that was not attained until after his arrest. The case was dismissed not long after he received bail. EGNews, you need to be professional in your reporting rather than just trying to shame someone.
