Oldie (but goodie) also from the UK....gotta love those Brits!Commuter who walked past actress at Waterloo station cleared of 'bizarre' sex assault claim
Mark Pearson may not even have made physical contact with woman in her 60s on busy concourse - but CPS approved sex assault charge
Hrm, I think I am beginning to see a pattern here..
A commuter has been cleared of sexually assaulting a well-known actress after a jury rejected claims the crime could have taken place in a brief half-second contact in a busy railway station.
Mark Pearson, a 51-year-old artist and picture framer, was accused of brushing against the actress, who cannot be named for legal reasons, in a mass of train passengers at London’s Waterloo station.
CCTV footage showed Mr Pearson, who was a complete stranger to the alleged victim, did not break his stride as he walked past the woman, who was heading to a rehearsal.
The defendant, who said he had endured a year-long “Kafkaesque nightmare” as a result of the complaint, blamed the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) for forcing him to endure “mental torture” as a result of the charge.
A jury at Blackfriars Crown Court took 90 minutes to clear Mr Pearson of the charge of “sexual assault by penetration”, the Mail on Sunday newspaper said.
There were no witnesses, no forensic evidence and the actress failed to pick out Mr Pearson in an identity parade of video images following the alleged incident in December 2014.
A CPS spokesman said: “There was sufficient evidence for this case to proceed to court and progress to trial. We respect the decision of the jury.”
Like they have a choice in the matter....
The CPS is the same bunch of douche-bags that (apparently) screwed the pooch in the OP and the other cases sited above...
Begs the question, do they fuck up a lot, are they just biased, or are they practicing a form of vindictive prosecution?Prosecutors slowed down CCTV in case of commuter cleared of 'bizarre' sex assault on actress
Crucial CCTV footage in a "bizarre" sex assault prosecution had been slowed down by the authorities to give a misleading impression of events, the defence solicitor in the case has revealed.
But it can now be disclosed that - to the concern of Mr Pearson's legal team - the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) supplied original CCTV depicting the alleged assault in an amended format which gave a misleading impression of the incident.
Maybe they are just a bunch of feminists, (either misandric females, or I-do-it-for-the-pussy
males *) who want to "help the victims," no matter what the cost.
