Grosu Petrica had always denied committing the crime – of deliberately engaging in sexual activity in front of a six-year-old girl for his own gratification – but had to wait three years for a trial.
When it took place at Bolton Crown Court this week it took the jury three hours to return a unanimous not guilty verdict.
The 59-year-old of Prospect Street, Tyldesley, was told he was free to go.
