Case Two

Several clients had charges of sexual violation withdrawn after their daughters admitted they lied about their fathers during cross-examination.

For example, Mr P faced 5 charges alleging sexual abuse. They were:

  • Sexual violation by unlawful sexual connection (20 years of imprisonment).
  • Indecent act with intent to offend (2 years imprisonment)
  • Indecent assault on a child (10 years imprisonment)

There were two complainants. The first complainant was aged between 10 and 11 years old, while the second complainant was aged 17 years. The charges against the second complainant were withdrawn from the jury as was one of the charges against the first complainant.

After a short deliberation in the jury room, the jury found Mr P not guilty of the remaining 2 counts.
