Lesley Manley represented a security guard accused of sexually assaulting a female customer at the store. The security guard was a family man of good character whose future career was in jeopardy. He maintained the offence was deliberately fabricated against him as he had apprehended the customer stealing.

He was found not guilty by the jury and a defendant’s cost order was made.

Lesley Manley was instructed by Mel Kelemework of ABV Solicitors.
