Slater Rejects Plea Bargain

Subscribe to Christian Slater alerts

Actor Christian Slater has rejected a plea bargain deal from prosecutors on a charge of allegedly groping a woman in a New York street.

The UNTAMED HEART star was charged with forcible touching after he allegedly grabbed a woman's buttocks as she was buying groceries in Manhattan in May (05).

Slater and his attorney insist the case should be dismissed because it's ridiculous, but the actor faces a year in prison if he's found guilty.

Under the plea bargain offered him this morning (14JUL05), Slater would have pleaded guilty to a charge of second-degree harassment in return for three days of community service.

The actor sat motionless during the brief hearing, but chatted with fans outside the Manhattan Criminal Court.

Judge RICHARD WEINBERG has scheduled Slater to return to court in September (05) for a ruling.

The actor will be hoping to avoid any sentencing as he is due to fly to London at the end of September (05) to rehearse for upcoming West End play SWEET BIRD OF YOUTH.
