An assault on character

Re the teacher accused of assault: not withstanding that I never doubted his innocence as I converted his loft for him and his family and a less placid mild mannered man you could wish to meet!

However, I think it’s an absolute travesty that someone gets put through this kind of public trial and named and (unfairly) shamed!

The same problem in rape trials where the accused is named even before they have been tried by a court!

There should be a change in the law where defendants are anonymous until proven guilty!
