The Club is delighted to learn defender Marvin Ekpiteta has been acquitted of all charges at Blackfriars Crown Court this afternoon. Following a re-trial, the jury was unable to reach a verdict and was therefore discharged. The prosecution subsequently offered no evidence and Marvin was acquitted on all charges.
Marvin has proven to be nothing but a model professional with an exemplary attitude in his time at the Club and we are pleased this has been recognised by the court's decision.
Marvin and the Club are now looking forward to moving on, and focusing on the O’s preparations for League Two.
