Man cleared of child sex offences

A MAN accused of sexually abusing a boy in Rotherham more than a decade ago has been cleared of all charges.

A jury returned unanimous not guilty verdicts on all counts today (Wednesday) after deliberating for seven hours and 28 minutes following a six-day trial.
