Complete acquittal in historic child sexual abuse trial
Daniel Chadwick acted for a man accused of seriously sexually assaulting his niece and nephew when they were children in the 1980s. The defence case was that the complainants had conspired to falsely accuse him as revenge for their involvement in publicising his daughter’s terminal illness in a local newspaper. Following a seven-day trial, the defendant was completely acquitted of all charges.
Counsel was instructed by Andy Smith at SBS Solicitors.
