Kulinsky back in court

The case of choirmaster Bohumil Kulinsky, who was twice acquitted of sexually abusing teenage choirgirls, is back in court. The Prague High Court recently cancelled both verdicts and ruled that the testimonies of 49 girls who were allegedly abused by Mr Kulinsky over a period of ten years should be heard anew. The court is now questioning Mr Kulinsky on individual counts of the indictment. The choirmaster has admitted to having had love affairs with several girls in the choir but claims that all of them were over fifteen and none of them had been forced into the relationship. If found guilty, Bohumil Kulinsky could face up to 12 years in prison.
