A MAN who was sentenced to 21 months in prison for abusing his 14-year-old sister has been acquitted by the Supreme Court.
The court, referring to the 14-year-old, said: “She missed the truth on more than one occasion and offered three different versions of events during the court procedure.” The court described the young girl’s story as “plainly inconsistent” and referred to the lack of evidence from the parents. The accused man had vehemently denied the accusations from the start.
The sister had accused her brother of touching her inappropriately behind greenhouses while they were out cycling. The sister said she pushed him away.
The court then overturned the conviction originally set by Almeria Provincial Court.
