Basshunter Pleads Not Guilty in Sexual Assault Case

January 13, 2011 (4:12 am) GMT
The Swedish singer will stand trial later in May for the accusation he treated two Scottish women inappropriately during a night out.

Swedish singer/DJ has pleaded not guilty to allegations he sexually assaulted two women at a nightclub in Scotland last month. The "Now You're Gone" hitmaker - real name Jonas Altberg - appeared at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court in Kirkcaldy, Scotland on Wednesday, January 12 and denied two charges of sexual assault, stemming from a night out after a show in Fife in December.

He is accused of attacking two women at the town's Kitty's nightclub, grabbing one woman by hair and pushing her head to his groin. Altberg will stand trial on May 18. According to The Associated Press, the date was set during the hearing before Sheriff James Williamson. He was released on bail provided he made himself "available for an identification parade".

Basshunter was accompanied to court by his manager Scott Simons.
