Successful Outcome | Not Guilty Of Sexual Assault

Successful Outcome | Not Guilty Of Sexual Assault 
Share

Kangs Solicitors has successfully defended an eighty-two years old client at Manchester Crown Court who was unanimously acquitted of six counts of serious sexual assault, contrary to the Sexual Offences Act 1956. 

The allegations were of an historical nature and had the alleged offences been committed after the inception of the Sexual Offences Act 2003, they would have been prosecuted as offences of rape.

Sukhdip Randhawa outlines how this successful outcome was achieved.

The Circumstances | Kangs Sexual Offences Defence Solicitors

Our client was an elderly man of good character who had worked all his life and retired to Anglesey, Wales.

One of his two stepdaughters alleged to the Police that she had been seriously sexually assaulted by our client, her stepfather, in the mid-1960s when she was aged between seven and nine years old.

A Police investigation commenced, following a referral to a psychotherapist which led to the eventual prosecution.
