At the beginning of this trial he pleaded guilty to an indecent assault against one of the girls when she was intoxicated and at home in bed and today he has been found guilty by a jury of a further indecent assault in relation to the same victim. He will be sentenced next week.
The jury has listened to all the evidence from the prosecution and defence and we of course respect the verdicts they have reached.
We take all allegations of rape and sexual assault very seriously and victims should know that we will prosecute such cases where it is right to do so.”
