Elton John testifies for defense in Kevin Spacey sexual assault trial


LONDON (AP) — Elton John testified Monday for the defense in the sexual assault trial of Kevin Spacey.

John appeared remotely from Monaco to testify after her husband, David Furnish, said Spacey only once attended the singer’s annual gala at his Windsor home.

One of the alleged victims accused Spacey of aggressively grabbing his crotch while driving with him to the dance in 2004 or 2005.

Spacey testified that he only attended the event in 2001. Furnish previously testified that he had reviewed the photographs and that was the only year Spacey attended.

John said Spacey spent the night at the house after the dance the only time he attended.

Spacey, 63, has pleaded not guilty to a dozen charges including indecent and sexual assault charges and one count of causing a person to engage in nonconsensual penetrative sexual activity.
