Coronation Street’s William Roache Found Not Guilty



Corrie stars are relieved this morning that one of their favorite stars, Coronation Street’s William Roache, has been found not guilty of rape and indecent assault. A tremendous burden has been lifted off the actor who is now free to carry on his life as normal


Coronation Street's William Roache Found Not Guilty

Coronation Street actor William Roache has been cleared of rape and indecent assault charges by a jury.

Mr Roache, 81, of Wilmslow, Cheshire, was found not guilty of two rapes and four indecent assaults after a trial at Preston Crown Court.

Five women had claimed he assaulted them when they were aged 16 or under between 1965 and 1971.

Outside court, he said: “In these situations there are no winners… we should be much kinder to ourselves.”

He added: “If you’ll excuse me, I need to get back to work.”

Evidence ‘lacked credibility’

His family, who had accompanied him to court throughout the trial, cried with relief as the verdicts were read out.
