Tal Landsman not guilty in LL Camps trial

articlemain

Tal Landsman, the co-founder of LL Camps, has been found not guilty of cruelty.

The 26-year-old was cleared at St Albans Crown Court today.

Mr Landsman,of Crambus Court, Admiral Drive, Stevenage, had been accused of a single charge of cruelty to a person under 16 between 31 July and 7 August 2015 at LL Camps in Borehamwood after indecent images were found on the mobile phone of Ben Lewis, also a co-founder of the summer camp.

The jury took just under an hour to acquit Mr Landsman, whose family and supporters were present to see him walk free.

The prosecution had claimed that Mr Landsman had not acted after he had learned that Lewis possessed the images.

Lewis, 26, formerly of Lullington Garth, Borehamwood, who was not in court, had earlier pleaded guilty to three counts of making (downloading) indecent photographs of a child and one of taking an indecent photograph of a child.

He is expected to be sentenced in the coming week.

LL Camps, in Bushey, Hertfordshire, was closed down in August last year after Lewis was reported to police by a member of staff who had seen the images.
