Kellie Enever, instructed by Jonathan Lynch of Lynch Law, represented a soldier of good character with 17 years’ service, accused of sexual assault.
The 4 day trial at Bulford Court Martial Centre centred around one issue: was the touching sexual? The allegation concerned a slap to the bottom of another soldier. The slap itself was not disputed. It being sexual, was.
Despite the admission of alleged “bad character” material that was originally charged by the SPA as a separate sexual assault but discontinued, and then subsequently relied upon to demonstrate that the slap was indeed sexual, the Board returned a verdict of not guilty.
