Jury Finds Two Men NOT Guilty Of Sexual Assault Against Woman Who They Gave A Ride


The two men who were on trial in the high court for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman were found not guilty by a jury today.

The complainant had alleged the men fondled her breasts and privates against her will after she hitched a ride from them in 2018.

According to the woman, the defendants had agreed to drop her near Brownies Bakery on lower All Saint’s Road but instead drove to Five Islands to commit the alleged crimes.

The woman said she yelled for the men to let her out but instead they rolled up all the car windows and turned up the music.

One of the men was charged with serious indecency, the other with indecent assault and they were jointly charged with unlawful confinement.

However, midway through the trial, prosecutors reduced the serious indecency charge to indecent assault due to inconsistencies in the woman’s account of the incident.

  1. This is a result of poor investigation. The woman would have given a statement and the investigator would have read it and asked her if she wanted to add or change anything. This same file would have gone before the betting unit then to the dpp office. No one spotted the inconsistency. This just did not happen at trial. It started with the woman giving the police a statement. Then the supervisor of that investigator must have seen that file and probably he or she don’t know what’s going on in a case file just past it on. Need to go back to the books of proper investigation.

  2. Two men found not guilty. What was there defense?
    At no time in the coverage of this story, the defense argument was presented.

    The emphasis of this article should have been about the defense.
