Formal verdicts have to be returned." Those verdicts were judge-
directed not guilty verdicts, which the jury duly returned.

The unco-operative witness is over 18. Nor would the prosecution give
me the name of the complainant, who is also over 18, according to
Mr Green.

Mr Stephen Littlewood is independent counsel instructed by the Crown
Prosecution Service, and in response to my question he told me his
chambers are KBW, based in Leeds. HG

Sexual misconduct and distress

By Helen Gavaghan at Bradford, Crown Court.

9th June, 2016
By unanimous verdicts a jury earlier this afternoon found Mr [] guilty of
two criminal counts involving sexual misconduct, and not guilty of a
third. The case was heard at Bradford Crown Court.

Mr [] is a white, middle-aged man in a stressful and unusually isolating
profession. That profession was not mentioned by defence,
prosecution or judge during their summings up as having relevance to
the offences.

Ms Chloe Fairley, for the defence, asked for a presentence report. That
and a psychiatric report are to be ready for 29th June, when Mr [] must
again appear in Court. Until then, said His Honour Judge Hatton, the
trial judge, Mr [] may make no contact with the two women who made
the complaints.

During the trial Mr [] denied touching one of the women in the manner
the Crown defined as sexual assault. He further denied intent to cause,br> alarm or distress to the second, though the Court heard evidence that
distress and alarm was the result of Mr []'s deliberate and admitted
action.

Mr David McGonigal of Broadway House Chambers presented the
Crown's case. Defence Counsel, Ms Fairley, is with New Park Court
Chambers.
