Blow, from Threemilestone near Truro, has been on trial at Truro Crown Court charged with four counts of rape, attempted rape, assault by penetration and sexual assault. Following a lengthy period of jury deliberation he was found guilty of two rapes and sexual assault. However, Blow was found not guilty of two further rapes. The jury failed to reach a verdict on charges of attempted rape and assault by penetration. The case was adjourned until next week due to Blow’s dialysis needs and barrister strikes at the start of the week. On Thursday the jury will continue to deliberate on the final two charges.

Blow was said to have initially tried to deny any wrongdoing before breaking down and admitting to his dad and police what he had done. However, he then denied the allegations saying he lied when initially speaking to the police because he thought if he agreed with what was being claimed that would be it and he could carry on doing magic. Ms Cassel said: “The impact on the complainant has been great. In 2019, she felt able to find strength and re-engage with the police and complete a video interview.”
