SUCCESS IN LINCOLN CROWN COURT ON SEX TRAFFICKING AND SEX OFFENCES CASE FOR LESLEY MANLEY
Lesley Manley’s client Mr H was tried at Lincoln Crown Court together with two co-defendants in relation to the trafficking of children in the United Kingdom in order that sexual offences would be committed. The case had resulted from a complex police investigation in respect of vulnerable children in the care of social services. The preparation of the defence case necessitated analysis of cell-site evidence, phone records, ANPR records and sensitive cross-examination of vulnerable witnesses. A considerable volume of third party material was scrutinised in detail by Miss Manley and the instructing solicitor.
In addition to allegations of trafficking the defendant also faced counts concerning having sexual activity with a child under the age of 16 and causing a child to become a prostitute by engaging in sexual activity with a person under the age of 18 knowing payment had been promised.
After a trial lasting 8 days Mr H was found not guilty of all counts alleged against him.
Lesley Manley was instructed by Kareena Maciel of U.K. Law Solicitors.
