A man has been exonerated by a London High Court judge after his ex-partner sent Facebook messages to around 100 people accusing him of sexually assaulting their one-year-old daughter.
The man had described the allegation as “totally false” and “disgusting”.
Mrs Justice Pauffley concluded that he had “done nothing of a sexual kind” following a hearing in the Family Division of the High Court in London.
“The mother sent Facebook messages to 100 or so people saying she had ‘caught (the father) fiddling with (her) baby’,” said the judge, in a written ruling.
“In addition, she said she had found ‘incest porn on his phone more than once’.”
She went on: “In evidence, the mother said she had intended ‘to do (that is send to) 200 friends’. She said, ‘at the time it wasn’t stupid. I thought people should know the truth’.”
Mrs Justice Pauffley concluded that the woman seemed to have “invented the allegation”.
“There is no evidence whatever upon which I could properly base a finding that the father has sexually abused (his daughter),” said the judge.
