Abuse claims against ex-Rotherham mayor Barry Dodson ‘pack of lies’

A former mayor of Rotherham has called allegations he sexually assaulted a teenager almost three decades ago a “pack of lies”.

Barry Dodson, 67, is said to have attacked the victim in 1987 at Boston Castle, when she was 13-years-old.

Details of the alleged assault emerged after the woman, now 41, sent an email to Mr Dodson in June 2014, while he was mayor of the town.

Rotherham mayor brands child sex assault claim ‘a load of rubbish’

A former mayor of Rotherham accused of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl has branded the allegations ‘a load of rubbish.’

Barry Dodson, aged 67, took to the witness box at Sheffield Crown Court to give evidence against claims that he had indecently assaulted a girl in 1987.

The woman had sent an email to Dodson on June 25 last year calling him a ‘dirty pervert’ and said she would go to the police so people knew ‘what type of man he was’.
