Ben Fellows found not guilty of perverting the course of justice over claims he was groped by Ken Clarke in 1994
Though Ken Clarke dismissed claims that he had groped a man as “preposterous”, “off the Richter scale” and “like Martians landing”, a jury found the actor who had made those claims, Ben Fellows, 40, from Birmingham, not guilty of perverting the course of justice yesterday at the Old Bailey.
A regular on the pages of Exaro News despite an attempt by the prosecution to bar reporting of the case, Fellows was cleared of a charge of “doing acts tending or intended to pervert the course of justice [by falsely alleging to police] that he had been indecently assaulted by Kenneth Clarke”.
Outside the court, Fellows – who was described by prosecutors as an “inventive and sometimes persuasive fantasist” – commented:
“It was an intense and terrifying experience being at the Old Bailey, and I felt completely out of my depth, and would never have been able to cope without the dedicated and hard working legal team paid for by legal aid”.
“As far as I am concerned, the next few weeks and months are about rebuilding my life and moving on. I shall make no further comment – now or in the future – about Mr Clarke or the events of 1994. I ask everyone to respect this decision and allow these matters to rest”.

So who is the liar then???????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
His fantasy notes about David Cameron and others are still online: http://google-law.blogspot.co.uk/2014/12/ben-fellows-thrown-into-worwood-scrubs.html He believes all that silly stuff about Masons, etc, etc, etc.
Know it’s Mr Clarkes turn in court?!
There’ll be ice-skates in Hell the day Kenneth Clarke is hauled into court over this……………….
I find it interesting that when a crime is reported to the police there is no proper investigation when it relates to a child sex abuse allegation even though I believe Ben Fellowes was not a child at the time he alleges he was groped. I find it incredible that the person alleging anything is then turned on and feels the full force of the Establishment. I adore living in freedom without state interference which regrettably cannot be achieved by many in the UK at the moment.
Victoria, these allegations are always very thoroughly investigated by the police whether true or not and very few False Accusers (worth mentioning that this Fellowes person has made a huge number of accusations none of which have ever been proven despite thorough and careful investigation) are ever prosecuted.
