Mr. F was arrested for assault by beating charges, after he was accused of assaulting his ex-partner in her boat. The arrest was made after he visited her in her boat, in an attempt to get his things back, including a set of his house keys.
Upon contacting us, our defence lawyers immediately leaped into action, and began by establishing the true nature of their relationship. They immediately secured any and all evidence submitted by the prosecution and the police, and meticulously analysed it for any inconsistencies. During their research, our defence lawyers discovered that the charges were manifestly false, and fully relied on the complainant’s own words, rather than on factual evidence. Stuart Miller’s defence solicitors also secured multiple witness statements that spoke to our client’s kindness, helpfulness, and good nature. Our client freely admitted to his relationship history with his ex-partner, and shared text messages and other mobile phone evidence. Despite the complainant arguing that he trespassed on her property, our client had text messages showing that she invited him over to retrieve his things.
During the trial, our defence solicitors fought hard to uncover the truth, pointing out that the complainant had changed her story multiple times, and that we had hard evidence of our client’s innocence. Despite our overwhelming evidence, the magistrates wrongfully convicted him, and charged him with a hefty fine for the offence. Undeterred, they immediately mounted an appeal to the Crown Court, determined for our client to see justice.
During the re-trial, our defence lawyers once again pushed forward the overwhelming evidence they had collected, from mobile phone data to interview recordings where the complainant admitted to lying about the source of her injuries. The complainant herself did not show up for the appeal, and our lawyers also proved that Mr. F had stayed away from her and wished to move on from this. Backed by our compelling evidence and indefatigable legal strategies, the judge had no choice but to see the truth and grant our client his appeal, effectively acquitting our client from all assault by beating charges and striking the conviction from his record.
