A story of the teacher, who molested a t Melbourne
The Victorian teacher Kathryn Joy Woods was accused in molesting a person under 16 by the Court. Her lawyer, Colin Mandy S.S., told the Court of Appeal today that her acquittal on 12 related charges showed that the jury must have doubted the veracity of her prosecutor. Mr Mandy said that it makes no sense for jury members to convict Woods on some charges, but not on others. He considers, if they have adequate doubts as to whether the applicant is telling the truth this doubt of his credibility should extend to other charges.
However, Attorney Jeremy McVilliams protected the guilty findings as “perfectly rational and completely logical.”
