Our thanks to Alan for this. The start of the piece:
Three jockeys questioned by police on suspicion of the rape of an 18-year-old woman in Wiltshire last year will not face any action.
Brendan Powell Jr, Richard Condon and Sean Mooney are no longer under investigation by police.
The men had denied any wrongdoing following an alleged incident at a house in Swindon on 3 November 2016.
They had been released on police bail and were allowed to carry on riding competitively.
“Following a detailed investigation by Wiltshire Police, the Crown Prosecution Service has reviewed this case and has decided to close it as no further action,” a police spokesperson said.
We can but hope this is the beginning of the end for the CPS making charging decisions against men when evidence against them is non-existent, or close to it. The next stage would be to bring back anonymity for men (and women) accused of sexual offences, until and unless convicted. Then Alison Saunders should be fired.
