Bramble cleared of sexual assault charges

May 31, 2012 21:51 IST

Sunderland defender Titus Bramble was cleared on Thursday of sexually assaulting two women last September.

A jury at Teesside Crown Court in northeast England found after a four-day trial that the former England under-21 international was not guilty.

The 30-year-old, who had denied the charges, was accused of groping a woman in a nightclub in Yarm and then sexually assaulting another in a taxi.
