Sunderland player Titus Bramble on trial over accusations of assaulting two women
Monday 28 May 2012
Sunderland defender Titus Bramble will go on trial today accused of sexually assaulting two women.
The 30-year-old is charged in connection with alleged incidents during a night out in Yarm, Teesside, on September 28 last year.
The defender, of Wellington Drive, Wynyard, near Middlesbrough, faces four charges - all of which he denies.
In the first he is accused of indecently touching one alleged victim.
In the second count, he is alleged to have touched another woman's leg and moved his hand towards her crotch without consent.
In the last two counts, he is accused of twice placing her hand on his crotch.
Bramble started his career at Ipswich Town and also played for Newcastle and Wigan Athletic before signing for Sunderland.
He is due to go on trial at Teesside Crown Court.
