SOCIAL MEDIA COMMENTS ON TRIAL ARE BECOMING A PROBLEM FOR COURTS

Stuart Olding’s solicitor says everybody on social media following the Belfast rape case saw themselves as a reporter and social commentator.

Paul Dougan’s comments follow a barrage of social media remarks surrounding the trial.

Rugby players Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding were found not guilty of raping the same woman in Jackson’s home – while two of their friends were acquitted of other charges relating to the same case.

Stuart Olding’s solicitor Paul Dougan says the commentary was unprecedented.
