As Def Sounds previously reported, early last month Detroit rapper Big Sean and an associate, Willie Hansbro, were arrested and charged with misdemeanor counts of forcible touching, unlawful imprisonment and sex abuse after a woman complained she was sexually assaulted during a concert in upstate New York.

Big Sean and Hansbro were released after posting bail, and were given a date to appear in a Niagara County Court.

Yesterday, Big Sean appeared in front of Judge Hugh C. Gee Sr. in a Lewiston Town Court on the charges, and according to the Buffalo News, Deputy District Attorney Holly E. Sloma asked the judge to enforce a gag order on the case due to the sensitive nature and age of the victim in the case.

The Judge allowed the DA’s request to file for a gag order and has scheduled a grand jury for the case, which will automatically be moved to a Niagara County Felony Court if the G.O.O.D Music rapper is indicted.
