Charles Howeson has been found guilty of all but two charges and the jury has been discharged.

The former Royal Navy officer has been found guilty of indecently assaulting eight young men

The prosecution will have to decide on whether to have a retrial on the charges of attempted buggery and indecent assault on a boy.

After 20 hours of deliberation, the jury came back with verdicts on 10 counts of indecent assault against eight men.

The victims included a Royal Navy junior rating, one handyman, who was assaulted on three occasions, and six young volunteers at the Groundwork Trust.

The jury was unable to reach verdicts on two alternative counts against a boy aged 14 or 15 who used to live near Howeson’s former home.

He was charged with attempted buggery of the teenager and indecent assault.

Judge Mark Horton discharged the jury and adjourned the case for the Crown Prosecution Service to consider whether to seek a retrial on those two counts next year.

Howeson, who sat stony-faced throughout the verdicts, was released on bail until a date to be fixed for sentencing, thought to be in February.

The people that moved him from ship to ship to protect the reputation of the Navy should be up for aiding and abetting buggery of minors, they are as bad as this creep.

Good. Odious man, using his position to abuse. He used to visit an office I worked in (not to see me, thankfully) and it was always good to know he'd gone.

And yes, Earwig - the top brass who snuck him away rather than do a proper investigation should be charged too. He's ruined some lives, going by the reports of the trial.

Surprised they have released him pending sentencing. They'll have some fun with him in Exeter nick for sure until he gets reassigned

Schadenfraude if ever there was. I will gladly own up to being delighted in the downfall of this particular  person. The ultimate bullshitter has been found out. Any sympathy should go to his, I assume unaware,  family.
The companies that helped cover up these misdemeanours should be named and shamed. Cover ups are often worse than the original crime although not in this case.

I disagree if this was a case involving a 'ring or gang' of drug dealers they all would have been banged up on conspiracy whether they had and gear or not, all would have had assets taken and all would have served time. The brass could have dealt with this the first time it came up and saved a lot of victims, guilty as he is. There was a similar case involving a private school teacher back along when he first got caught the school let him resign and he disappeared to Africa to run an outdoor pursuits centre for young boys. Guess what? He filled his boots a second time but luckily someone spoke up and he ended up in court. At the trial more boys came forward from the school and he got done for them as well. At no time was any criticism directed at the school another case of one rule for them and another rule for us.

Some of the high profile people that supported Charles Howeson during his trial

A staggering amount of people came forward to act as witnesses to Charles Howeson’s good character during his trial, including leading figures such as a former council leader, MP, doctor, bishop and Royal Navy top brass.

Each of the 54 character references fiercely defended their friend, colleague, father and husband – with most commenting on his strong sense of integrity and impeccable character.

But after 20 hours of deliberations, the jury at Bristol Crown Court found Howeson guilty on 10 counts of indecently assaulting eight young men.

South East Cornwall MP Sheryll Murray,
former council leader John Ingham
former Plymouth MP Linda Gilroy
Lord Sebastian Seymour, son of the Duke of Somerset
Dr Steven Warren semi-retired Plymouth GP
Vice Admiral Sir Richard Ibbotson
Vice Admiral Sir David Dobson
Andrew Wynn, former commander in the Royal Navy

Strange world! I worked with Charles Howeson for 18 months and socialised with his family a few times. That was after he had re-joined the RN having left to stand for parliament. I found him, and his family, to be friendly, nice and genuine. He was a little eccentric at times but that was his style.
I was really surprised when he was charged and even more so when found guilty. Strange world!
