Pamela Brain secured an acquittal of 12 counts following an eight day trial at Woolwich Crown Court. The charges related to allegations of historical sexual assaults and rape made by three complainants from the defendant’s family between 1968 and 2012. Ms Brain was able to successfully challenge the accounts of the complainants. The Prosecution later dropped the case on two further counts.

Pamela Brain also secured an acquittal of 13 counts at Luton Crown Court following a five day trial concerning historic allegations of indecent assault and buggery. This case concerned allegations made by four complainants in the defendant’s family, dating from 1971 to 1977.
One of the challenges in this case was the admission that virtually all members of the wider family had themselves suffered sexual abuse by family members, as children. Ms Brain’s sensitive cross examination of each complainant successfully raised doubt as to the accuracy of their recollection, resulting in the prosecution offering no evidence in relation to one multiple count at an early stage.
