Led Junior Stephen Rose secures the acquittal of Tory MP aide in rape case involving late disclosure of evidence

21. Dec 2017

The client was charged with assault by penetration, 2 counts of rape and sexual assault towards a parliamentary assistant. The sex took place in the MP’s office on the Parliamentary Estate. The defence was consent.

The prosecution made late disclosure which significantly assisted the client’s case.  The case is understandably being linked to similar cases of recent weeks. It comes following the case of Liam Allen, a man who spent two years on bail for a rape case that was dropped just last week and a second case involving Isaac Itiary who spent four months in jail awaiting trial before all charges were dropped yesterday.

The jury unanimously acquitted our client of all charges.
