Reg Traviss denies rape charge
Sep 13, 2012, 8:01 GMT
Reg Traviss has pleaded not guilty to rape.
The director - the former boyfriend of late singer Amy Winehouse - appeared at London's Southwark Crown Court yesterday (12.09.12), where he denied two counts of rape on New Year's Eve last year (31.12.11).
Traviss - who was dressed in a grey suit, white shirt and red tie - was bailed until December 10 when he will face a three-day trial.
The 35-year-old film maker was formally charged under his full name Reginald in June after a woman alleged she got drunk on a night out and the next thing she remembers was him having sex with her, the court heard.
Rebecca Mundy, a lawyer for the Crown Prosecution Service, said in June: 'I have authorised the Metropolitan Police to charge Reginald Traviss with two counts of rape.
'The alleged offences took place between 29 December 2011 and 1 January 2012.
'The decision was taken in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors.'
The sexual assault was first reported on January 18 and Traviss - who was dating Amy at the time of her death at her home in Camden, North London, in July last year - was arrested on April 5 by the Metropolitan Police.
