More than five years after she made headlines, the woman who had been charged with two counts of rape and two counts of serious indecency towards two teenaged girls walked free from the High Court on Friday.

And her attorney is asking for cases involving sexual offences to be fast-tracked so that other accused do not spend five years on remand awaiting the disposition of their cases like his client Lisa Lynton did.

Lynton, now 42, of Foul Bay, St Philip, was indicted with committing an act of serious indecency on a 13-year-old girl, sometime between December 25, 2013, and April 30, 2014.

She was also charged with raping the 13-year-old girl and her sister, as well as indecently assaulting the girl’s sister between the same dates. (HLE)
