The warden of St Andrews University’s Catholic Chaplaincy was yesterday cleared of sexually assaulting two young women.
Marc Morris – who also helped run the Fife university’s Companions of the Order of Malta society – faced two charges involving students at the university in February 2017.
A trial at Dundee Sheriff Court was told the two women came forward after Morris was installed as warden of the Catholic chaplaincy at the university and moved into the property in September 2017.
Sheriff Jillian Martin-Brown ruled both women were “credible” witnesses but she could not rely on their evidence as to whether 26-year-old Morris’ alleged actions were sexual.
She found Morris, from St Andrews, not guilty of both charges.
