TOPIC: JK's trial collapses

JK's trial collapses 1 Year, 2 Months ago  
Just in case you haven't yet read elsewhere, JK's trial at Southwark Crown Court dramatically collapsed today when the jury were discharged and the prosecution abandoned.

The reasons for this cannot be reported as yet. I suspect because the matter is pending a decision by the CPS on a possible retrial.

For now, however, he remains a free and most importantly innocent man.

Thought it had gone quiet.

While I am no criminal expert,the reasons for collapse must surely be because the prosecution case had severe weaknesses....now they will fiddle around trying to salvage anything they cam.

I am not sure if it is, Andrew. It is only postponed, and who would want another year of hell waiting?

There is an interesting difference between the Daily Mail's & BBC's reporting into the collapse of this case:

www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-london-44634770

"It was claimed the 73-year-old, who was appearing under his real name Kenneth George King, used his fame to carry out attacks on boys aged between 14 and 16."

www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5891621...COLLAPSES-tried.html

"King, of , Bayswater, denies 17 charges of indecent assault and seven other sex charges relating to males aged between 16 and 21."

It's quite possibly an error on the part of the Mail's journalist - Richard Spillett who is on Twitter for anyone wishing to check - or then again it could be a case of him living up to his name!

A google search today simply showed a lot of different news outlets putting out the almost the same story,with a few minor cosmetic details.

Interesting to note,that unlike the Mail and others the BBC made no mention of a retrial.

I thought perhaps it was revealed that the complainants were older than they thought, leading to the postponement?
