Coming from a troubled family background, Mr. A and his younger brother did not have the most stable relationship growing up. The two of them had a tumultuous relationship, and after their parents had divorced, the two would often spend time apart, with Mr. A at his mother’s house, and his younger brother, Mr. T, at his father’s house.
Mr. A and Mr. T were on an errand to obtain some ‘food’ (which Mr. A later admitted was drugs) from the victim when Mr. T entered the car, had a quick conversation with the victim and then hurriedly left. Mr. A was none the wiser as to what had happened, and was shocked when he was arrested a few days later on suspicion of murder.
After contacting us to represent him, our criminal defence solicitors immediately began working on the case, determined to uncover the truth of the matter. Apart from meticulously analysing the evidence submitted by the police and the prosecution, our murder lawyers worked closely with forensic experts to analyse CCTV footage from the street, from the entrance of the hospital (where the victim was admitted), and with forensic experts that analysed our client’s clothing for any blood spatter analysis. Our criminal defence solicitos also worked closely with any potential witnesses, and with our client’s friends and family members to prove his good nature.
Our criminal solicitors luccessfully proved that our client had no idea who the victim was, did not know that he was attacked, and the forensic reports proved that our client did not attack the victim with a bladed weapon, using blood spatter analysis to prove that our client was standing on the wrong side when the attack occurred. As the charge was made by his brother, the charge was false and malicious, caused by a turbulent home life that almost affected our client’s freedom. Thanks to an impeccable legal defence, our criminal solicitors showed the jury the truth, and the jury immediately acquitted our client, clearing him of all false murder charges.
