Beach assault accused found not guilty

Beach assault accused found not guilty

Wick Sheriff CourtA JURY found a Caithness man unanimously not guilty of a serious assault against a 17-year-old woman at a beach party in the summer.

The jury returned their verdict today (Friday) after the trial of Gary Gallacher who denied assaulting Kelsey Johnson to her injury and danger of life at Dunnet beach on June 7.

A 15-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, also pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Miss Johnson claimed her hair was pulled, her face was shoved in the sand and that 21-year-old Gallacher put his hands round her neck and was strangling her.

But the defence claimed that Miss Johnson had picked on the 15-year-old and was shoving him when Gallacher intervened.

It was stated Gallacher was then scratched, punched and kicked by Miss Johnson and her friend Lauren Carruthers.

The trial, before Sheriff Andrew Berry, got under way on Tuesday afternoon.

After the evidence was heard the jury found Gallacher, described as a prisoner at Perth, not guilty of the assault.

The case against the 15-year-old was dropped earlier by the Crown.
