Man cleared of sexual assault of 16-year-old boy
"A man accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old has been cleared.
EB was facing trial for kidnap and sex offences when the case was thrown out by Judge Douglas Field, sitting at Swindon crown court, after hearing the prosecution case.
He ruled no jury could properly convict the 37-year-old on the evidence of the alleged victim, now 19, as it contained ‘serious inconsistencies’."
