Darren Hughes will not be charged.
“After this careful consideration, the allegations do not reach the evidential threshold required to bring charges. As a result, no charges will be brought against Mr Hughes.”
“Some media outlets received an anonymous letter about Mr Hughes whilst Police were investigating this complaint. I can confirm those allegations contained in the letter have been investigated and there were no matters which arose that required police attention.”
“It would be inappropriate for me to comment further on this matter, given the investigation has now been completed and Mr Hughes is not facing any charges. I am also mindful of respecting the privacy of the individuals concerned.”
Obviously we’re unlikely to get much more information unless it comes from one of the participants. That is likely to be constrained in nature unless it winds up with a case in civil court at some level.
The key phrase is “…the allegations do not reach the evidential threshold required to bring charges.”. What this means is that the police did not think that they could win a case in court for any of the allegations. Now I’m sure that isn’t going to stop some of the hysterics in the blogosphere from rabbiting on (Whaleoil with his well known contempt for the legal system comes to mind). But they are usually less interested in the facts than the police usually have to be – most of the time they won’t get a judge looking at what they are saying.
