Statement released by Jeremy Moore of Carter Moore Solicitors on behalf of Jack Tuohy and his family following his acquittal at Manchester Crown Court today.

“Jack has always maintained his innocence of these very serious allegations and is delighted that t jury came to the only sensible conclusion. His life has been on hold for 18 months during which time he has been under the most severe stress. The family would now ask that they be left alone so that Jack can resume his very promising professional career. The family would like to thank his legal team at Carter Moore Solicitors and Paul Hodgkinson of Counsel for their amazing work in proving Jack’s innocence”.
