Coronation Street’s Michael Le Vell Cleared of All Charges

Michael Le Vell is ecstatic after being cleared of all rape charges. The highly popular Coronation Street actor was charged with three counts of rape which threatened his career and public image, but has been acquitted by the court. Corrie executives have indicated they want to initiate a dialogue with Michael to return him to the show, but Michael says he might take a holiday first.  Here’s the scoop.

The star, real name Michael Turner, was accused of raping and sexually assaulting a youngster but has been cleared of all charges.

Le Vell was seen to mouth “thank you” to the jury, who had deliberated for five hours, as the verdict was delivered.

He was hugged by a supporter as he was cleared after what had clearly been a nerve-racking process.

His brother and sisters, who sat in the public gallery, were in tears as the verdicts were delivered.

Another man screamed “get in” when the last verdict was announced to the packed court.

The actor, from Hale, Cheshire, who has been in the ITV soap for 30 years, faced 12 charges in all – five counts of rape, three of indecent assault, two counts of sexual activity with a child, and two of causing a child to engage in sexual activity.

Speaking outside the court, Le Vell’s overwhelming relief was clear to see.

He said: “I am delighted obviously, it is a weight off everyone’s shoulders.

“And I would just like to thank my fantastic legal team, the family for their support, security, and I would like to thank ITV for their continued support throughout this traumatic time for all of us, and I would like to say thank you all for being patient.

“And I might go and have a drink now.”

Asked when he would return to Coronation Street, Le Vell said: “I don’t know, I might have a holiday first. I’ll have to go and have a chat with my boss.”

Coronation Street’s Michael Le Vell has been cleared of all charges and we hope he’ll return to Coronation Street. It’s not quite the same without him. I think it’s not only a shame, but criminal when people wrongly accuse someone of such a heinous crime, and what for?  Perhaps the thought of gaining large sums of money they didn’t earn, I don’t know. I’m just happy when justice is served and in this case, justice cleared Michael Le Vell.
