R v Anthony Ford

May 11, 2021

Richard Orme successfully defended a police officer who was accused of sexually assaulting five female colleagues in 2018 and 2019. PC Anthony Ford, who denied the offences and claimed his behaviour only involved ‘jokey and flirtatious banter’, was unanimously found not guilty of 13 offences by a jury at Liverpool Crown Court.

The case received coverage in the media, featuring in the Daily Mail, the Lancashire Telegraph and the Burnley Express.
