The Spanish Supreme court has acquitted a father accused of sexually abusing his daugther after a local court in Almeria had sentenced him to seven years in prison. The Supreme court heard the original trial had relied exclusively on the testimony of the 12 year old daughter, and ignored the statements from her brother, and from the girlfriend of the defendent, that the girl had confessed that her mother had told her to make a false accusation.
Now the Supreme Court, after reviewing the video of the trial, held last year, consider the testimony of the girl’s brother, 16, to be key, and who said that his sister confessed a year before the trial that the complaint was false and that she made it because her mother pressured her to. Another issue that the Supreme Court noted was the fact that the two children slept in the same room, for, according to the judges, the day on which the events took place in October 2009, the young man would have witnessed them for he used to spend all night at the computer and went to bed early in the morning. The girl had claimed that her father, in a drunken state, got into her bed and touched her breasts and slipped a finger into her vagina, at which time she woke up and upon denouncing him, her father left the room.
It would be interesting to know how much time this father spent in jail and whether any action has since been taken against the mother. Regardless, it would have had, and will still have, a horrendous impact on his life – the incident was alleged to have occured in October 2009 when the children were in the care of the Father and his girlfriend.
