Eleven Jersey child abuse cases dropped

Eleven cases relating to allegations of historic child abuse in Jersey have been dropped, police have confirmed.

The island’s Attorney General advised that no further action should be taken on the cases after police submitted them to lawyers.

Mick Gradwell, senior investigating police officer, said it would not be “appropriate” to comment any further and confirmed that the long-running inquiry into historic child abuse on the island was continuing. He added that other files were still being considered.

The news comes a year after charges were dropped against a couple who were arrested on suspicion of child abuse as part of the inquiry.

Earlier this month, Michael Aubin, 46, of Southampton, was sentenced for sexual abuse of two boys at the Haut de la Garenne children’s home.
