He was aquitted at this Crown Court hearing under Judge Bernard Lever, but Lever allowed the criminal ASBO to remain in place. Why, if Mr Parnell was aquitted of the ludicroius crime of assault with a sneeze? How can a punishment be enforced on an innocent man? I am disgusted at how the CPS, Greater Manchester Police, the Courts allowed themselves to be abused and possibly hundreds of thousands of pounds of taxpayers money to be wasted and valuable police man hours to be wasted in pursuit of a vicious vendetta by grubby little councillors and senior council officers at Stockport. Justice stinks. The lives of not only gentle, innocent, peaceful Mr Parnell were destroyed, but also of his lovely family. Shame on all involved with this case!
