Marilyn Manson is hoping that Pearl Harbor Day doesn’t lead to an ambush for him in Michigan courts. The shock rocker’s hearing on charges of criminal sexual conduct and assault-and-battery, which were scheduled to be heard on Friday (November 9), has been moved to the morning of December 7 at the request of his attorneys. Judge Gerald E. McNally of the 52nd District Court in Clarkston, Michigan will hear the case.
Manson is free on $25,000 personal bail after a September 21 arraignment at the court. The charges stem from a July 30 OzzFest appearance at the DTE Energy Music Theatre, at which a security guard alleges that Manson rubbed his genitals on the guard’s neck and body. Manson’s attorney Walter Piszczatowski has indicated that they’ll plead innocent.
