After a hard-fought trial in Downing Centre District Court, the jury returned a verdict of ‘not guilty’ in favour of our 40 year old client who was charged with ‘aggravated indecent assault‘ and ‘aggravated sexual assault’.
It was alleged that our client sexually assaulted his sister-in-law on two separate occasions many years beforehand.
The alleged assaults had been reported at that time to a school counsellor and school friend, but no action had been taken.
Our client strenuously denied the allegations.
The verdict was unanimous and our client is free to move ahead with his life.
