The Mexican singer, who was detained in Texas earlier this year, will leave the prison because a judge ruled there is not enough evidence to take his rape case to trial.

Mexican singer Kalimba is set to be released from jail after a judge ruled there's not enough evidence to take his rape case to trial. The pop star, full name Kalimba Marichal Ibar is accused of raping a 17 year old in a Quintana Roo hotel in December 2010.

He was deported from America to Mexico last week after a Mexican judge issued a warrant for his arrest. He was detained in Texas and his attorney claimed he was in Texas on business and was not trying to flee.

Kalimba, 28, has maintained his innocence of the rape charges.

The singer was the voice of Simba in a Spanish-language version of "The Lion King".
