January 30, 2015: Adam Price appears at Mold Crown Court where he is told the proceedings against him have been halted. He had been held in custody charged with the rape of a 16 year old girl. This was said to have been the second rape trial halted at Mold that week, the first was stopped because the defendant had been in touch with prosecution witnesses, thus undermining their credibility.

The above is based on a report in the Shropshire Star, January 31, 2015, Edition 01, page 5, (accessed here through NewsBank). It is not clear to me if the two cases alluded to above were connected. I also consulted the hard copy of the Shropshire STAR, Last Edition, January 31, 2015. Curiously, page 5 is an entirely different story about a bloke who was convicted at Shrewsbury Crown Court, another rape trial.

And, for the avoidance of doubt, this Adam Price is not to be confused with the Adam Price who was convicted of rape in 2009 at Liverpool Crown Court.
