Denver (AP) A Denver tango instructor has been convicted of improperly touching one of his students during a dance lesson.

A Denver jury found 55-year-old Charles Gale guilty of unlawful sexual contact yesterday after a woman accused him of touching her genitalia and telling her “this is for you.” prosecutors say the woman told gale she signed up for tango lessons, not sex.

The woman says gale touched her inappropriately during the two tango lessons she took with him last year.

Gale's defense attorney says he was merely touching her to show her sensual dance steps.

Gale plans to appeal the verdict.
