A client who faced two serious allegations of rape and child cruelty has been found not guilty before Harrow Crown Court.
From the outset, Mr S strenuously denied these allegations which the prosecution alleged had been committed against a family member. After being charged with this offence his case was thoroughly prepared by Katy O’Mara and he was represented in court by William Paynter. On the day of his trial the prosecution finally accepted that their case was evidentially weak and that the complainant was not going to participate in the proceedings. They therefore offered ‘no evidence’ against Mr S and a ‘not guilty’ verdict was recorded.
