Comedian Andy Dick Pleads Not Guilty to Sexually Battering Rideshare Driver


The Comedy Central Roast Of James Franco - Show

LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Comedian Andy Dick pleaded not guilty today to a misdemeanor sexual battery charge involving a rideshare driver.

Dick, 53, is accused of groping the driver on April 12, 2018, in West Hollywood, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.

A Nov. 4 pretrial hearing is set for Dick, who could face up to 180 days in county jail if convicted as charged.

In late February, the comic pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges of battery and lewd conduct for groping a woman last year and was given the option of serving 30 days in jail or performing 15 days of community labor or 150 hours of community service. He was also put on probation for three years, according to the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office.

A misdemeanor count of sexual battery was dropped as part of the plea agreement, under which Dick was told he would not have to register as a sex offender if he completes probation without committing a similar offense.

Dick was charged last summer after he was accused of groping the buttocks of a complete stranger and making lewd comments to her as she walked past him.
