Gates' representative, Glenn Selig released a statement on Monday that his client "welcomes the opportunity to confront these charges in court."

"He is not going to comment further until he has had a chance to review the lengthy indictment with his legal team," Seling said.

"He would appreciate you respecting his and his family's privacy as they weather this unexpected and hasty proceeding designed to accommodate perhaps political and press considerations rather than his right to have counsel of his choice by his side during the most troubling and challenging day for him and his loved ones."

"This fight is just beginning."
