Mr. Z was arrested for common assault after complaints by his wife – on one occasion, she alleged that he assaulted her as she tried to grab his phone. On the second occasion, she alleged that he assaulted her as she blocked the kitchen door, and their son had to intervene.
Upon contacting us, our assault lawyers immediately went to the police station, to provide legal advice, consult with our client, and ascertain any evidence the police had. Our assault lawyers were determined to quash this as soon as possible, and avoid the lengthy wait of going to court. During the police interview, they discovered that the allegations were patently false – in fact, the son confirmed it, and our client pointed out that his son never provided a statement about the alleged common assault.
Furthermore, the police were unable to find any evidence of the common assault – the wife had no bruises or marks on her body. Armed with the evidence, our criminal defence solicitors skilfully argued against our client’s arrest, pointing out the complete lack of evidence and to our client’s good character. Faced with overwhelming evidence, the police were forced to release our client immediately, effectively dropping all charges. Thus, our client’s name was cleared, and he avoided a long drawn-out trial that would have smeared his reputation.
