EXCLUSIVE: 26-YEAR-OLD ACCUSED OF MULTIPLE RAPES RELEASED AS AN INNOCENT MAN

An Isle of Wight man who says he was wrongfully accused of raping a number of women has walked free from court today (Monday) as a result of the case against him being dismissed, with the Crown Prosecution Service dropping all charges against the 26-year-old.

Mr Frankie Vecsei was charged in October last year with 9 counts of rape against 6 women, with the alleged offences said to have taken place between 2013 and 2021. He appeared before magistrates and was remanded in custody where he has remained since.

However, last week the Bembridge man was immediately released from custody when the criminal case against him fell apart.

The former taxi driver has always protested his innocence and had pleaded not guilty to all charges against him.

Mr Vecsei appeared at Portsmouth Crown Court this morning where the case collapsed, with the Judge recording a formal not guilty verdict. He was told that the charges against him had been dropped and he was free to go – now as an innocent man.

The Crown Prosecution Service offered no evidence against Mr Vecsei as a result of investigations revealing ‘collusion’, the court heard. A number of electronic devices had been examined and multiple communications between the alleged victims were discovered.

However, Hampshire Constabulary has confirmed that there is currently no criminal investigation born out of this shocking development.

A spokesperson for the CPS has told Island Echo:

“We have a duty to keep all of our cases under continuous review.

“After review, in accordance with our legal test, we concluded there was no longer a realistic prospect of conviction and ended this case.”

I think you will find that is a result of the device printing what it thinks you have said rather than what you have said in the same way they default to Americanisms.

the licence department will be subject to legal challenge for treating an innocent man as if he were guilty….those working in that department are not fit for the job and should be sacked for their disgusting attitude

The staff at the License Department all need to work in a mainland branch for at least six months to make them realise that they are not as high and mighty as they all think they are. This poor man will be consigned to their delete file with no thought or compassion for his future.

Had same situation in my family with three lying bitches, Ruined 3 years of my sons life with their bullshit, Even though he was innocent, the mental torture was terrible, Didn’t get as far as court,No further action,but don’t stop them mouthing at him in the street,Why don’t police charge the women who waste their time, its wrong and insulting to genuine victims it puts them off of reporting sex crimes Hope he can move on, I’d love to know the names of the supposed victims, would be surprised if same viscous gang,
