Following a trial lasting 7 days at Southwark Crown Court, Parliamentary assistant, Callum Warren was yesterday found not guilty of all charges against him.
Our client, Mr Warren, was accused of a series of sexual assaults and digital penetration against the complainant.
Freemans Solicitors took over the handling of the case, after Mr Warren contacted our Police Station Advice Coordinator, Harvey Fox. The matter was litigated by Vanessa Mistry and Peter Bedingfield. Mr Warren was represented at trial by Barrister Michael Field.
Mr Warren said that there had been flirting between him and the complainant, which led to sexual intercourse on one occasion. He had been clear that all sexual contact had been consensual. He said that the allegations of sexual assault and digital penetration did not happen.
It has been an extremely difficult period for Mr Warren. Both his professional and personal reputation had been questioned as a result of the allegations. The case had been reported in the media. Speaking after the not guilty verdicts he explained:
“These allegations, hanging over me for the last two and a half years, have made my life extremely difficult and I am pleased to have finally been cleared of them by the jury.
I would like to thank my legal team at Freemans Solicitors, particularly my Barrister Michael Field and my Solicitor Peter Bedingfield, who have been excellent throughout.
Thank you also to my friends and family who have supported me, both emotionally and by speaking so highly of me at the trial.”
