Mr S was accused by a work colleague of having attacked her sexually, on two occasions, on the same day following a prolonged period of sexual harassment without sexual touching.

Indicators were that the Complainant had many life issues including mental health problems and was prone to fantasy.

Nevertheless, Mr S worked in a regulated environment, he was working in a temporary contract post, lost his job within the temporary contract and was suspended from and/or found it difficult to get alternative work whilst this matter hung over him.

We did extensive research into the complaints by taking witness statements from many of Mr S’s work colleagues at the time, obtained many and various character references about Mr S and asked many searching questions of the CPS in a Defence Statement which had all the references appended to it together with the statements of the work colleagues.

We continually pressed the CPS to have a conference with their barrister (Counsel) asking them to reconsider their position in relation to whether or not this case continued to be feasible in light of the mental health history of the Complainant and what everybody else had to say about her, about her fantasy lifestyle, about her mental health issues and Mr S as a person.

Eventually, the CPS had the conference with their Counsel and decided to offer no evidence against Mr S.

Formal not guilty verdicts were then entered at the Crown Court, by the Judge and Mr S is now free to continue his employment after some two years.

Clearly, he is delighted.
