The Nigel Evans case - justice has been done, but at a cost
Nigel Evans is not guilty of the offences he was charged with. I’m pleased for him...
Nigel Evans MP is not guilty of the offences he was charged with. I’m pleased for him. I also feel deeply sorry for him: this last year must have been hell, and having been tried and acquitted, he not only faces a big legal bill: he has lost an important job that must have meant a lot to him, and he must have felt his personal life has been paraded in front of the entire public, and cast in a misleadingly negative light. Nothing will ever be the same for him, as he said shortly after his acquittal. Being cleared comes at a terrible price.
