When police spoke to him he said he had never been subject to or had witnessed any abuse.
Nick’s £34k Mustang convertible
On the opening day of the trial, members of the jury were told of a sports car on Mr Beech’s drive on the day he was arrested.
The Crown’s Mr Badenoch said it was not the prosecution to prove why Mr Beech had done what he did, but suggested there may have been a financial motive.
The court was told that Mr Beech had made money out of the case, successfully obtaining £22,000 from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.
Mr Badenoch said: "The payment was made on 2 April 2015 from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority. The £10,000 cash deposit for the white Ford Mustang convertible that was on his drive, identifiably came from that fraudulent claim."
He said Mr Beech appeared to have been intending to become a speaker on the international circuit on the subject of child abuse.
