When a routine request for medical care turned into a fight for justice, our client Mr. O found himself facing false assault charges from a prison officer. Denied access to critical hay-fever medication and subjected to unjust physical force, Mr. O bravely defended himself – only to be wrongly accused of assaulting an emergency worker.
Our Defence Lawyers’ Efforts:
Our defence lawyers immediately sprang into action; the first step in their legal strategy was to ascertain the full story – this meant requesting all evidence from the prison and the prosecution, and meticulously analysing all recorded footage, including body-worn cameras, to ensure that there were no inconsistencies or liabilities in the prosecution’s argument.
Our defence solicitors discovered key recorded evidence – Mr. O was defending himself against unwarranted assault by the prison officer and was merely attempting to exercise his right to medication, exercise, and some fresh air. They gathered overwhelming evidence to prove that the charges were patently false and malicious, and submitted the evidence to the prosecution. Despite this, the prosecution insisted that the trial continue.
During the trial, our defence lawyers’ intensive grilling of the prosecution’s witnesses resulted in the witness being forced to admit the truth – that our client was acting in self-defence. Upon hearing this, the jury realised the facts of the matter, and unanimously acquitted our client. How We Can Help You:
