Kate Blackwell QC successfully defends female vicar charged with sex offences

Reverend Veronica Green, vicar of Marbury, Tushingham and Whitewell in Cheshire, has been acquitted of all six charges following a jury trial at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court. Kate Blackwell QC was instructed by Tony Nelson of Hawarth and Gallagher Solicitors. The Prosecution case alleged that Veronica Green had performed sex acts with and in front of two young girls for whom she had been babysitting in the 1970s and 1980s.

Tony Nelson had this to say of Kate Blackwell QC’s involvement in the case.

“The professional performance of Kate Blackwell QC was a masterclass in professionalism and strategy.  Never ruffled, cool and calm, oozing appropriate confidence and inspiring hope and confidence in the client and all around her”
