Man cleared of historic sex abuse at Bestwood care home


A former social worker at a Bestwood children’s home has been acquitted of historical child sex offences.

Lewis Castillo, of Winterbourne Drive in Stapleford, was charged with five counts of indecently assaulting a child back in August last year.

The 53-year-old denied the offences, which were alleged to have taken place against one victim at the Redtiles home in Bestwood, between 1989 and 1990.

He was found not guilty today (21) by a jury at Nottingham Crown Court following a three-day trial.
