Vic­tim’s courage praised

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

THE po­lice of­fi­cer who led the in­ves­ti­ga­tion into Ben­nell’s crimes has praised the vic­tim’s courage in speak­ing out against him.

DC Alison Green­wood said: “The vic­tim was too scared to tell any­one what had hap­pened and has had to live with what hap­pened to him for many years.

“He has found it dif­fi­cult to come for­ward and it was only in re­cent times that he felt the courage to speak out and re­port what hap­pened to him.

“I hope that the con­clu­sion of this case to­day will help to bring some clo­sure for him – and help him to rebuild his life.”
