Having initially faced charges of kidnapping, and then eventually s.18 GBH with intent, the defence put forward robust defences challenging the Crown’s case in relation to DNA, CCTV, electronic forensic evidence and purported expert evidence.
All three defendants had verdicts of Not Guilty returned by the presiding Judge and two were immediately released from custody. The third awaits trial in unrelated proceedings but no longer faces the lengthy sentence that attaches to the offences charged.
Central Chambers has a criminal team with experience in defending against all manner of violent offence allegations – ranging from common assault through to GBH and malicious wounding – as well as kidnap. Out criminal lawyers have high levels of expertise in evidence relating to technical data and expert evidence.
