Mr. G and his ex-partner had a troubled relationship but continued to maintain a relationship as they had a child together. After being released on bail after facing charges of domestic violence, Mr. G was arrested once more for charges of common assault and witness intimidation after his ex-partner, Ms. T, called the police.
Afraid for his future and determined for the truth to be revealed, he contacted us to represent him. Our criminal defence solicitors immediately sprang to action, determined to uncover the truth of the matter. After meticulously analysing all evidence submitted by the police and the prosecution, our assault solicitors gathered their own evidence and conducted a thorough legal investigation. Beginning with questioning our client’s friends and family members, to working with CCTV experts to analyse any and all camera footage that may have recorded the events, to working with forensic experts to analyse any DNA or forensic evidence left behind, our assault solicitors were finally able to view the larger picture – which showed that the allegations were false. The investigation proved that the allegations did not take place – our client did not visit the complainant, and our client’s mobile phone evidence further proved that he stayed away from her and only communicated with a third party to co-ordinate potential visits for his child to come and see him.
Before the trial began, our criminal defence solicitors submitted overwhelming evidence that proved our client’s innocence, including multiple witness and character statements proving our client’s good nature, and that the complainant was prejudiced against our client, and had attempted to file false allegations against him. Faced with the facts, the prosecution realised that they didn’t have a leg to stand on, and were forced to offer no evidence and withdraw all charges. Thanks to our criminal defence lawyers’ detailed investigative efforts and empathetic strategies, our client avoided the stresses of a criminal trial and was freed from all false allegations.
