Mr. B was at his grandmother’s house helping care for his grandmother when the police knocked on the door. Upon letting them in, he was placed under arrest for attempted murder, and immediately taken to the police station.
After speaking to our duty solicitor, Mr. B recruited our services. Our murder lawyers immediately sprang to action, determined to uncover the whole truth and prove his innocence. Beginning with the evidence gathered by the prosecution, our criminal defence solicitors meticulously analysed the evidence for any biases and inconsistencies. They hired a DNA expert, and a mobile phone expert, to verify the evidence submitted by the prosecution, and to provide an objective report. Furthermore, our criminal defence solicitor spoke to our client, his friends and family members, and other acquaintances related to the alleged offence.
During this stage, our lawyers discovered that the evidence submitted by the prosecution was wrong – the police claimed to prove that our client was at the scene due to mobile phone evidence. The kicker? Our client did not have a phone during the alleged offence, as his previous phone was damaged, and he had stopped using it. Furthermore, DNA analysis shows that our client’s fingerprints were on the outside of the car window – for the car that was used during the alleged offence. Thus, there’s no possible way to date the fingerprint, or prove that our client was sitting inside the car. Our criminal defence solicitors collaborated with our client’s mother and realised that she was working during the alleged offence – which meant that our client was at home, caring for his grandmother.
Before the trial even began, our murder solicitors submitted overwhelming evidence that proved our client’s innocence. Faced with the facts, the prosecution was forced to admit that they had no evidence, and were forced to drop all false charges of attempted murder, effectively acquitting our client.
Being falsely accused of a serious crime like attempted murder can be incredibly damaging – particularly since bail is normally not granted for serious offences like rape and murder, which means your freedom is curtailed before you even have the chance to prove your innocence. f you or someone you know is in a similar situation, please don’t hesitate to contact us now.
