Mark Harries secures acquittal of step-father accused of raping his step-daughter.

Mark Harries secured the acquittal on all counts of a step-father accused of a campaign of rape against his step-daughter when she was between 6 and 8 years old. The complainant, now 17 and with considerable difficulties, was assisted by an intermediary.

The Judge, HHJ Del Fabbro, told counsel at the conclusion of the trial that both conducted themselves exceptionally and that their advocacy and approach to the trial was “the epitome of how these difficult cases should be conducted.”

Mark Harries was instructed by Ben Leech at Farleys Solicitors.
