Mr. H was brought in on charges of affray, and of possession of a weapon in public after CCTV footage recorded a few young men threatening members of the public in Tower Hamlets. Despite his plea to the contrary, the police brought him in and charged him with these offences.
After contacting us, our defence solicitors immediately launched their own investigation to uncover the truth. They began by requesting and reviewing all CCTV footage, body camera footage, and speaking to witnesses and our client’s friends and family members. Our defence lawyers also chased the prosecution and the police to submit all evidence they had, and to disclose any unused material.
Our defence solicitors discovered that the CCTV footage was wrongfully analysed, and that our client had done nothing wrong, or illegal. In fact, he was wrongly accused of affray and possession of a weapon as the prosecution did not thoroughly analyse the footage before filing these charges. Furthermore, the prosecution dragged their feet in submitting evidence, despite multiple warnings from our defence solicitors and the court. Before the trial even began, our defence solicitors submitted volumes of evidence that detailed our client’s innocence, and pointed to the fact that the prosecution had not submitted enough evidence, violating the rules of the court.
Recognising that the charges were wrongfully filed, the prosecution immediately withdrew, fully acquitting our client.
The importance of closely analysing all the evidence is paramount, as even the smallest detail can mean the difference between being falsely imprisoned and being free.
