You Light Up My Life has been recorded by artists including Whitney Houston
An Oscar-winning songwriter accused of molesting a series of actresses in New York has been released after paying $1.25m (£780,265) bail.
Joseph Brooks, who won the best song Oscar in 1978 with You Light Up My Life, is accused of forcing himself on 13 women in his Manhattan apartment.
The 71-year-old has pleaded not guilty to predatory sexual assault.
Taken from the film of the same name, You Light Up My Life was originally recorded by Kacey Cisyk.
It went on to be covered by a variety of artists, among them Johnny Mathis, LeAnn Rimes and Whitney Houston.
Bail was originally set at $250,000 (£156,038) but was raised to £1.5m (£936,641) when more charges were filed against him.
A judge subsequently reduced the amount after Mr Brooks said he needed money to live on and send his daughter to college.
Prosecutors claim the women he allegedly molested had been lured to his apartment by ads offering auditions for movie roles.
A director and producer as well as a songwriter, Brooks also composed music for The Lords of Flatbush and the West End musical Metropolis.
