A 59-year-old woman who was accused of having sex with a 14-old-boy on holiday in Ibiza has been cleared of all charges.
Gail Dickinson, of Glenrothes, Fife, was charged after the boy’s grandmother claimed she saw them having sex on the balcony at an apartment in San Antonio in June.
But on the second day of her trial at Dunfermline Sheriff Court she said he raped her and the jury cleared her of all charges.
Jurors returned a “not proven” verdict on the charges of engaging and instigating sexual activity with a minor, and not guilty on two related charges. She was then told by the judge that she was free to go.
She smiled as she left court this afternoon, telling reporters: “Justice has been served”.
But the boy’s relatives were visibly upset. One woman with them looked at Dickinson and shook her head, saying: “So wrong.”
As Dickinson cried in relief after being set free, the woman told her: “You know what you did.”
