Richard Wright QC leading Kama Melly successfully prosecute Headmaster and Priest at Catholic boys schoolRichard Wright QC
Richard Wright QC and Kama Melly have secured the conviction of two men for dozens of historic sexual offences committed against vulnerable boys who had been placed in their care at St Williams approved school in the 1970s, 80s and 90s. Operation Reno was a five year long investigation conducted by Humberside Police into the sexual and physical abuse of children at the school. The case was complex and involved considering the evidence of hundreds of witnesses and thousands of documents. After a 10 week trial the jury convicted the former principal and the former priest at the school of dozens of serious sexual offences committed against some of the most vulnerable children in society.
