2013: The Reverend David Cooper is the victim of a police trawl. In the 1980s, when he served as a minister at Burbage, Leicestershire, he gave the non-victim piano lessons.

This is yet another case of a pathetic woman seeking to blame all her problems on some (imaginary) sexual trauma. The offences alleged were said to have taken place between 1979 and 1986. Although she used the word rape, she didn’t mean rape. For real.

The case went to trial at Leicester Crown Court in August 2015, and he was acquitted of all charges, which did not include rape.

This file contains two reports from the Leicester Mercury.

Although he looks happy here, by the time this case was heard he’d been given the boot for having it off with a much younger woman. His wife also appears to have thrown him out.
