Beth Crocker secured the acquittal at Inner London Crown Court of her client (‘MB’) charged with 15 counts of historic sexual abuse.  MB was alleged to have sexually abused his step-son and step-grandson over a number of years.  He was accused of abusing his position of trust within the family and systematically abusing the boys when home alone with them or when he took them on holiday.

The ‘clean sweep’ acquittal came following a trial involving the cross examination of vulnerable witnesses and complex disclosure issues.
