Congratulations, Mr. Leslie, for having your name cleared after what must have been a very stressful 12 months. John Leslie cleared of sexual assault in Edinburgh nightclub 'Former television presenter John Leslie has been cleared of sexually assaulting a woman who was celebrating her hen night in Edinburgh. Mr Leslie had been accused of putting his hand down the back of the woman's trousers while the pair were dancing in the Attik nightclub last June. The 53-year-old denied the allegation and after a two-day trial a sheriff found the case against him not proven. [...] The witness insisted he had a good view of the dancefloor from his elevated DJ booth and said that when the song ended, Mr Leslie kissed the woman on the cheek and walked off. He added: "I wasn't 100% on them, but I would have noticed if there was some problem or if I needed to call a door steward over, which I never saw at all." The court also heard from the bride-to-be's friend, who said that the way that Mr Leslie was touching her friend was "inappropriate" and that she had looked "scared" [...] She said: "They were dancing and I could see he had his hand on her lower back, which I felt was inappropriate. "I would have felt uncomfortable if it was me. "The next time I looked up, I couldn't see his hand any more. I could only see the top of his wrist. It was at the top of her tutu. "At this point she looked scared." The woman said she cut in between the pair and danced with her friend, who initially said that she was fine, but then started crying and later reported the incident to police.'
