Our client, Mr. O was falsely accused of driving without insurance and possessing a knife by the police, during a routine traffic stop. Our criminal defence solicitors determined that the allegations were false after closely analysing all the evidence and after confronting the prosecution, all false charges were dropped, freeing our client from a wrongful conviction.

Mr. O was stopped by the police one morning during a routine traffic stop in London and was arrested for driving without insurance, without a licence and was searched, and taken to the police station. At the station, an additional charge was added – possession of a knife. Pushing this from a summary offence to a more serious one, Mr. O contacted us to represent him and uncover the truth. 

Our criminal defence solicitors immediately sprang to action, determined to reveal the truth of the matter. After extensively analysing CCTV footage of the area, body-worn camera footage from the arresting officers, and communicating with our client, they determined that the charges of driving without a licence and possession of a knife were patently false. Our client has an Irish driving license – valid to use in England and does not warrant the charge of driving without a license. Though our client did accept that his insurance had expired, the fact that he did not have any weapon on him escaped the police.  

Before the case went to trial, our criminal defence solicitors submitted overwhelming evidence of these false charges to the prosecution. Recognising their error, the prosecution immediately discontinued the case and withdrew all false charges. By avoiding an unnecessary trial, our criminal defence lawyers saved our client the time, money, and resources that would have been wasted in a courtroom, and granted his freedom much earlier.
