On October 15, Greenwood was formally accused of:

Greenwood is still under suspension from Manchester United and was charged last month.
According to the Crown Prosecution Service, all three charges are related to a single accused victim who cannot be named at this time.
A magistrates court judge rejected Greenwood’s request for release following his initial court appearance on October 17, and he was remanded in custody. Three days later, a successful appeal resulted in his release.
United continues to suspend Greenwood “pending the conclusion of the judicial process.” Before charges were filed, the club stated that he was receiving his full salary during the suspension, which was in the neighborhood of £75,000 per week.
