Paul Rooney secures acquittal of man accused of rape.

Paul Rooney acted on behalf of Mr M. before Mrs Justice Simler at Newcastle Crown Court on 6th & 7th February 2017.

Mr M. was charged with committing four rapes on his wife over a 7-month period in 2014, as well as assaulting her.

Following a day of legal argument during which Paul highlighted a number of deficiencies in the Crown’s case with regard to the investigation of the alleged offences, the Crown reviewed their case overnight and offered no evidence in relation to all counts on the indictment. Not guilty verdicts were recordered.
