Curious Fellows

Section:

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”.

    1. 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.
