Prior to the case reaching trial he had pleaded not guilty but changed the plea to no contest, meaning he was not required to admit guilt.

The police investigator explained during the trial that Manson had spat a "big lougee" at her before returning to where she was standing, blocking one of his nostrils, and blowing a "significant amount of mucus" on to her.
Manson is reported to have pointed and laughed as he walked away to continue the concert. In a statement read in court, Fountain said, "I've never been humiliated or treated like I was by this defendant. For him to spit on me and blow his nose on me was the most disgusting thing a human being has ever done." In January, a California court dismissed a sexual assault lawsuit filed by his former partner Ashley Morgan Smithline; Esmé Bianco’s federal sexual assault suit against him was settled out of court, and a new suit was presented detailing allegations of child sexual abuse dating back to the ’90s.
