*Big Sean appeared in court on Tuesday over sexual assault charges stemming from an arrest last month.
The rapper, real name Sean Anderson, was taken into custody with Willie Hansbro over an encounter with a female fan following a concert with Wiz Khalifa in Lewiston, New York. They’re accused of forcible touching, unlawful imprisonment and sexual abuse.
The two men, who were freed on $500 bail, were in Niagara County Court Tuesday when the judge issued a gag order on the case because the alleged victim is just 17, according to AllHipHop.com.
Anderson and Hansbro are due to return to court on Oct. 11.
The two suspects have yet to enter their pleas. Big Sean’s lawyer, Scott E. Lemon, is downplaying the charges, insisting, “Both men were charged with misdemeanors and they both vehemently deny the allegations. I am confident, that after further investigation, both men will be vindicated.”
