67-year Old Man Cleared of Historic Sex Abuse at Scarborough Care Home – Taryn Turner defends

A 67 year old man, who was a Residential Care Officer at Throxenby Hall in Scarborough, has been cleared of a historic charge of indecent assault after the Trial Judge directed the jury to acquit, following legal submissions, at the close of the prosecution case.

A police investigation into Throxenby Hall – codenamed ‘Operation Manuka’ – was launched in February 2015. Proceedings against the man – who first spoke to the police in 2015, and then again in 2016 – were initiated in 2018 about an alleged offence in the 1980’s.

The acquitted defendant was represented by Taryn Turner.

Taryn was instructed by Nick Tubbs of Tubbs & Co, Scarborough.
