Mr. A was on his way to his friend, Mr. J when he noticed a pair of keys on the middle of the road. Without much thought, he picked it up and continued to Mr. J’s house, with the intention of dropping them off at the car park nearby, assuming that the keys could belong to a car parked there. At Mr. J’s house, the two had pleasant conversations – so imagine his surprise when the police arrived and arrested the two of them for attempted murder.
After contacting us for legal help, our murder solicitors immediately began their own thorough legal investigation, to uncover the truth of the matter. To start with, our criminal defence solicitors meticulously analysed all evidence submitted by the prosecution, for any biases or inconsistencies against our client. Furthermore, our murder solicitors combed through witness and character statements from friends and family, and verified the fact that our client was at home during the time of the alleged attempted murder offence – which was verified via CCTV footage and analysing his electronic devices to verify the date, time, and location of him being online.
During the trial, our criminial defence solicitors objectively proved that our client was completely innocent, and could not have possibly been involved. Furthermore, our criminal defence solicitors also proved that our client had picked up the keys erroneously, and was completely unaware of the car being involved in the offence of attempted murder. Realising the folly, the jury immediately voted to acquit our client of all false charges, effectively setting our client free.
