‘Not Guilty’ Verdicts in Sex Offences Case| Kangs Solicitors


Kangs Solicitors represented two defendants in a trial at Warwick Crown Court concerning historical allegations of interfamilial child sex offences between 2004 and 2010 involving a total of three complainants.

Our two clients were charged with various sexual offences both under the Sexual Offences Act 2003 and the Sexual Offences Act 1956 including indecent assault, sexual activity with a child under 13 and assault by penetration of a child under 13.

Following a 12-day trial whereby all defendants and a total of 10 witnesses gave evidence, the jury returned unanimous ‘not guilty’ verdicts with regard to 18 of the 19 counts and were unable to reach a verdict on a single count and were subsequently discharged.

The case was factually complex due to the historic nature of the allegations and involved examining medical records, school reports, historic emails and attending on family members, in a sensitive manner, who were not directly connected to these proceedings, and obtaining their witness statements to see how they could assist the defence case.

The case was conducted by Mr Cagin Husnu at Kangs Solicitors. Mr Barry Kogan of Carmelite Chambers was instructed to represent the lead defendant and Mr Zaheer Afzal of St Philips Chambers acted for our second client.
