Norman Sully faces “Trial of Facts” – Elmhurst Children’s Home and Bracken House
Posted on: October 5, 2018
NORMAN SULLY is currently facing a “trial of facts” in respect of allegations of child abuse which span back to the 1970s.
The former solider, who has also worked as a Police Officer, is accused of sexually abusing five boys who were in the care of the Local Authority at two children’s homes – Elmhurst Children’s Home, Derby and Bracken House Children’s Home, Nottingham. He has pleaded not guilty to the allegations against him.
SULLY, who suffers with dementia, and therefore has been deemed unfit to face trial faces a “trial of facts” in which a jury will decide, on the balance of the evidence presented to them, whether he committed the acts complained of by the victims. As Norman Sully has been deemed unfit to face a trial, he cannot put in a defence. There will not be a guilty or not-guilty verdict, and the Court cannot pass sentence, even if the jury decide that the incidents did occur.
