Denis Bennett: Sexual Assault

Denis Bennett (Liberal Democrat)

Denis Bennett, 50, a married father of two who had served on St Austell Town Council, convicted of Sexual assault stood in the dock at Truro Crown Court to hear the verdict. The jury took an hour and fifteen minutes to find the supermarket worker guilty of one count of indecently assaulting the 18-year-old man.

Bennett had denied the allegation at Truro Crown Court, insisting he had merely been fooling around with the teenager, admitting only that he might have gone “over the top a bit”.
