Kellie Enever – instructed by Jonathan Lynch of Lynch Law (who specialises in Service Law and Court Martial proceedings) – represented a young soldier accused of two counts of sexual assault.
The allegations, which dated back to 2020, asserted that the soldier had sexually assaulted another soldier by:
- Touching her thigh whilst sat next to her on a bench; and
- Touched the top of her bottom (when she had consented to him lifting her down from an army vehicle).
Much hung in the balance for this 22-year old. Had he been convicted he would have been added to the Sex Offenders’ Register and been dismissed from the Army.
After deliberating for just over an hour, the Board unanimously acquitted him of both counts.
