Howard Kruger was convicted of child sex abuse on the basis of witness evidence and medical evidence showing internal signs of abuse. The conviction was quashed when evidence from a friend of the complainant suggested internal injuries could have been caused while her and the victim were playing “doctors and nurses” with a toy medical kit. Due to delays involved in the case, a retrial was not considered in the interests of justice.
