Bruno Langley pleads guilty to sexual assault charges

Bruno Langley has today been in court at Manchester Magistrates' Court on the charge of sexual assault.

From BBC News

Bruno Langley admitted groping two women in a music venue. The women reported being assaulted at the Band On The Wall on Swan Street in Manchester on 1 October.

Langley, 34, of Altrincham, pleaded guilty to two sexual assaults at Manchester Magistrates' Court and was told he may face a custodial sentence.

The actor, who played Todd Grimshaw for 16 years, left the ITV soap after an internal inquiry in October.

The court heard Langley had grabbed the crotch of one woman and touched the breasts and bottom of the other while drunk.

Prosecutor Karen Saffman said Langley had been "clearly intoxicated" when he approached the first woman, who was out with her husband.

Reading from the woman's victim statement, she said he had "properly grabbed" her crotch with a "rough grab".

Ms Saffman told the court a man who was with Langley had then apologised for the actor's actions and the woman had gone to the toilets, where she was approached by his second victim who told her she had also been attacked.

She said Langley had also sexually touched two other women, but had not faced charges over those assaults.

District Judge Mark Hadfield said he would consider a probation report, which was being prepared, before deciding if Langley would be sentenced at the court or be sent to Manchester Crown Court, where he could face a longer penalty.
