thisisoxfordshire: Lawyer cleared of sex charge - but jury still out on second count Lawyer cleared of sex charge - but jury still out on second count

A LAWYER from Chad has been cleared of one count of sexually assaulting a 17-year-old girl on a city bus.

But the jury in the Oxford Crown Court trial of Haroun Mahamat Akai – formerly of Evans Court, Kidlington, but now staying in Perth Road, Dundee, Scotland – has not yet reached a verdict on a second count of sexual assault.

The offence is alleged to have taken place in Banbury Road, Oxford, on August 12 this year.

He was acquitted of a separate charge that was alleged to have taken place on a bus earlier on the same day.

The 30-year-old was studying English in Oxford at the time and admits kissing the complainant on the cheek, but denies sexually assaulting her.

The jury will continue deliberating on Monday morning.
