Former Nottingham social worker cleared of historical child sex offences

Nottingham Crown Court

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

In August 2016 Lewis Castillo, of Winterbourne Drive in Stapleford, was charged with five counts of indecently assaulting a child.

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.
