Jury discharged in Shropshire child sex case
- 29 October 2012
- From the section Shropshire
A jury has been discharged after failing to reach a verdict on whether a man abused a 14-year-old girl.
Delivery driver Noshad Hussain, 22, of Regent Street, Wellington, Shropshire, had denied the four charges of sexual activity with the teenager.
The jury at Wolverhampton Crown Court was discharged on Friday.
Earlier in the trial Mr Hussain was found not guilty of a separate charge of facilitating child prostitution, relating to a 16-year-old girl.
The Crown Prosecution Service will now decide whether it wants a retrial on the four counts.
The judge will hear from the prosecution on 13 November about whether it wants a retrial.
