I don’t normally comment on cases during trials as it’s a legal minefield. Most MSM sources report everything that can be legally reported and there is normally very little I can add.
However, one thing that the prosecution often try to highlight in these kind of cases are similarities between independent witness testimony as this can demonstrate that the accused had a particular approach. This can often be seen to strengthen cases like this.
Below are three allegations set to be made under oath by three independent witnesses.
1) During an audition, Clifford exposed himself and said to the 19-year-old: ‘Look at my prick. Isn’t it tiny? What can I do with this?’ Afterwards, she received a call from a man with an Italian accent, who asked about Clifford’s penis. The prosecution says this was Clifford, who went on to expose himself again during a second meeting.
2) Clifford invited the 18-year-old to audition for a role in Labyrinth, starring David Bowie, but said she would have to sleep her way to success. He told her he had a small penis, took down his trousers and added: ‘If you touch it, it gets bigger.’ The girl left and never spoke to Clifford again.
3) Clifford and another man allegedly approached the 18-year-old in a cafe and hired her as a secretary. Miss Cottage told the jury that he eventually approached his new employee while stark naked, and said he wanted to teach her how to perform a sex act, adding that if she complied ‘she could meet David Bowie’. She refused.
