All charges dropped,
Sickening that innocent people are named in such cases before being put before the Courts.

I wish him success in his Refereeing career

Even as a Wire I am sorry but Westwood is nowhere near as skillful as Super Sam or Ellis.

Wazza's main industrys are service industries, call centres, warehouses and the public sector nowadays. All three are under threat from the Tory cuts.

Cant imagine what he and his family have gone through. To be accused of such things and it being in print before any court appearances let alone conviction is a disgrace. Hope you keep on reffing despite this.

I'm not sure it's possible to keep an arrest, investigation or criminal charge confidential. If the arrest is kept out of the public domain how would anyone know to come forward with evidence that might clear the suspect? As soon as the authorities started making enquiries and asking questions the news would be 'out there' anyway.

In rape cases it is illegal to name the "victim" but not the accused. To my mind, in these type of sensitive cases, people shouldn't be named until the case is proved and not just restrict anonymity to rape victims.

Agree Completely !
UK law has a presumption of innocence until proven guilty, the UK press has a presumption of guilt until proven innocent.

A media ban should apply to all court cases unless a judge grants an order to lift it if they deem it to be in the public interest or if it assists either the police or the accused in the case.

Jamie was never charged with anything, so they couldn't be dropped.

The police decided that the allegations had no foundation.

There is an exclusive interview with Jamie in today's issue of League Express.

It is quite an emotional read.
