Man Charged Over Louis Walsh Indecent Assault Claims
He could face up to five years in prison for the false allegations...
According to The Mirror, Watters appeared at a brief hearing at Dublin District Court at 1pm this afternoon, and was granted bail on the condition that he does not contact Walsh or any member of Westlife.
He was charged under section 12 of the Criminal Law Act, with penalties for the offence ranging from a €500 fine, to five years behind bars.
Walsh, who released a statement yesterday after the case against him was dropped, said he was "relieved and overjoyed" that the ordeal was over.
The X Factor judge has since vowed to seek legal action after The Sun newspaper printed Watters claims, and added that he is "looking forward to getting back to work."
The case has now been adjourned until 7th September at the District Court, where Leonard Watters will learn his fate.
