King in court on sexual assault charge

LONDON, February 25 – Middlesbrough striker Marlon King appeared in court here on Wednesday to face charges of sexually assaulting a woman in a nightclub.

MARLON_KINGJamaica international King is alleged to have assaulted and punched a 20-year old woman in London’s Soho Revue Bar in December.

District judge Nicholas Evans, presiding at the City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court, adjourned the case until April 8 when King, who was released on bail, will appear again at the same court, a court spokesman said.

The 28-year-old is on loan to Middlesbrough from fellow Premier League club Wigan Athletic.

King has endured a stormy season, having already left his season-long loan at Hull.

During his time at the KC Stadium, he was banned from driving after being caught speeding at 106mph in a 60mph zone, had a falling-out with Tigers boss Phil Brown and rowed with Dean Windass during an outing designed to foster team-spirit.
