Oscar Winner Accused of Rape Out on Bail

(AP) The Oscar-winning songwriter and director behind 'You Light Up My Life' is out on bail Thursday after being charged he lured women to New York City and raped and sexually assaulted them. Joseph Brooks pleaded not guilty earlier in the week. Watch the shocking video of the AP story detailing the brutality of Brooks' crimes and the fact that he used Craig's List to lure 11 women to his home where he raped them and possibly drugged them.

You Light Up My Life was one of the biggest hits in American pop history. Evangelical Christian singer Debbie Boone, daughter of Pat Boone, took the slow love ballad, that she devoted to God, to the top of the charts for 10 weeks in 1977 during the height of the disco era.
