Wigan Athletic - Marlon King Starts His Trial

Wigan Athletic striker Marlon King appeared at Southwark Crown Court yesterday as the defendant in a trial having been accused of sexual assault allegedly causing actual bodily harm to a 20 year old female who cannot be named for legal reasons.

A report in the Daily Telegraph says that prosecutor Roger Daniells-Smith told the court that King touched the womans bottom in a 'deliberate and sexual way` to which the woman recoiled and told King firmly 'don`t touch me`.

The Telegraph goes on to describe how evidence given by the woman also says that King punched her in the face leaving her with a split lip, broken nose and black eye.

King is claiming mistaken identity and denies the charges but the prosecutor said that 'many witnesses` not only saw the attack but also recognised King as a high profile sportsman.

At the time of the attack Marlon King was on loan at Hull City

if found guilty he would likely be gaoled in which case his contract would be more than likely cancelled

why do these people put themselves in this situation? What's wrong with staying in with a nice cup of cocoa and a good porn movie!
