McCartney's Brother Cleared Of Groping Charges

LATEST: SIR PAUL McCARTNEY's younger brother MIKE McCARTNEY was cleared of groping a teenage waitress yesterday (24FEB06).

The 61-year-old sibling of the former BEATLE was charged with sexually assaulting the 16-year-old at a public house in Wirral, Merseyside, in September 2004.

But Judge ELGAN EDWARDS confirmed he left the court "without a stain on his character" after finding him not guilty - and McCartney hailed his famous brother for standing by him.

He said, "I want to thank my family, including my big brother, who has been a rock during this attempt to soil our family name."
