Former Deputy Speaker Nigel Evans has been cleared. It looks as if the trend for complaining about the sexual conduct of people in the public eye is up against juries who don't believe a word. The 2 Corination Street actors and now Nigel Evans. No cash cows for plaintiffs. Listening to the police statement, the plaintiffs are still being referred to as 'victims' ( if I understand correctly). I know sometimes the guilty are cleared and that victims of sexual offences should not be discouraged from complaining to the police but a more appropriate form of words should have been used by Plod.
