CSA case not properly investigated by Leicester police

Post by Doug D on 13.02.19 18:18

CSA case not properly investigated by Leicester police:
 
the officer made a series of mistakes, such as failing to interview key witnesses, missing a number of 'obvious' lines of inquiry, failing to record conversations with witnesses and contacting witnesses during the trial.
 
The law firm also claimed the officer failed to follow up lines of inquiry relating to the alleged sexual abuse of other people.
It said the officer also made critical errors in gathering and disclosing evidence for use during the trial, leading to its abandonment.
 
 
Failed abuse investigation leads to police apology and payout
 
The failings led to the court case being abandoned

Leicestershire Police have apologised and paid damages to a woman who reported being sexually abused after the force admitted its failed investigation led to the collapse of the trial of the alleged culprit.
 
The county force was approached by the woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, in February 2011, when she made a series of historical child abuse claims against a man.
 
The woman claimed the abuse began in the late-1970s when she was seven years old, and continued into her teenage years.
 
Police then arrested the alleged perpetrator and later brought charges of child cruelty and indecent assault, according to Leicestershire Live.
 
However, it has been claimed the trial was later abandoned as a result of failings by an officer in the force's child abuse investigation unit.
 
The law firm which acted on behalf of the woman when she brought a claim against the force for its handling of her case said the officer made a series of mistakes, such as failing to interview key witnesses, missing a number of 'obvious' lines of inquiry, failing to record conversations with witnesses and contacting witnesses during the trial.
 
The law firm also claimed the officer failed to follow up lines of inquiry relating to the alleged sexual abuse of other people.
It said the officer also made critical errors in gathering and disclosing evidence for use during the trial, leading to its abandonment.
 
In December 2011 the constable was required to leave the unit because he had twice failed detective exams.
 
He was later served with a formal written warning after the force found him guilty of professional misconduct.
 
Despite this, he remained the lead officer in the woman's case, the law firm said.
The officer resigned before Leicestershire Police could hold gross misconduct proceedings against him.
 
Alleged perpetrator may never now be brought before court
The woman said she was "pleased that Leicestershire Police have acknowledged that their investigation into my case was flawed".
 
But she said she was "extremely distressed" that she was "now left with no way" to bring the alleged perpetrator of the abuse to justice, "having already gone through the incredibly difficult investigation and failed trial process".
 
She added that she was also extremely distressed that she had been "failed so terribly by the police, whom I trusted".
 
Yvonne Kestler, a solicitor in the human rights department at law firm Leigh Day, represented the woman in her claim against the police.
 
She said: "While there is no way that our client can turn back the clock and receive a proper and thorough investigation of her case, we are pleased that she has received compensation that will help with ongoing support and a formal apology and acknowledgment of the failings by Leicestershire Police.
"Police forces must adequately train and supervise their officers to ensure investigations are carried out properly from the outset."
 
Police response
 
Leicestershire Live put the individual allegations made by the law firm to Leicestershire Police, but it declined to comment specifically on them.
Detective Chief Inspector Simon Hurst, of Leicestershire Police's professional standards department, said in a statement: "We can confirm damages have been awarded to the claimant in this case after failings in the police investigation were identified.
 
"When these failings were brought to our attention, the force's professional standards department conducted a detailed investigation for and on behalf of the claimant.
 
"The investigation determined that the original investigating officer had a case to answer for gross misconductand was to be the subject of misconduct proceedings.
 
"He resigned prior to those disciplinary proceedings being heard.
 
"We acknowledge there were shortcomings in the initial police investigation into the case.
 
"The actions of the officer concerned fell below the standards we adhere to."

Hi DougD,thanks for the article,congratulations.

Ah Yes,Leicestershire Police Force,the same force carried rigorous investigations into Lord Janner,who escaped any Prosecutions of "Child Abuse"?
Yet the Social Care Worker who filed a complaint about MP Mr Janner on child abuse on behalf of a minor in his care,faced a proper investigation,when(Janner,used his influence)to look into the Complainants past! Poacher became Gamekeeper?  

After the Social Care Worker was convicted of Child Abuse,whilst "Appealing his Case"His Solicitor and Mr Frank Beck met with untimely Deaths,Mr Beck Heart attack and Solicitor Road Traffic Accident,where No One was ever caught!

Then you have Leicesteshire Police Force heavily involved with the disappearance of Madeleine McCann,who were to assist the Portugal PJ,but it seems as though they had their own agenda via the Metropolitan Police Service,Gold Group 8th May 2007 in Portugal?

Could you possibly get into the habit of putting a space after a comma, thus, and two spaces after a full stop.  Like this.
It makes it easier to read, and sounds less manic.  Thank you.
