Emma Goodall’s client found not guilty of historic child cruelty offences

02.10.17 | |

Emma Goodall’s client was unanimously acquitted of eight counts of assault and child cruelty at the conclusion of a trial that lasted over two weeks. The allegations, which dated back almost forty years, were made by two of the defendant’s children and supported by her former husband who gave evidence against her. The trial was extremely emotive and was subject to daily reporting by the media.


Emma was instructed by Ann Rushton of Traymans Solicitors.
