Mr. G was arrested after asking 2 police officers directions to the British Transport Police Office at Islington, and was charged with racially aggravated assault. Upon his arrival to the police station, he immediately contacted us to represent him at very early stage.
Our defence lawyers immediately began formulating legal strategies and built a case plan where we meticulously examined the existing evidence, spoke to our client’s friends and family to establish his good character, and drew up defence statements that will be submitted to the court. Furthermore, our assault lawyers repeatedly chased the police and the prosecution to submit evidence for disclosure, so we could finely comb through the evidence and look for any inconsistencies or biases against our client. With a potential sentence of 2 years in custody for the racially aggravated assault charges, our defence lawyers were ruthlessly determined to ensure that an innocent man did not end up behind bars.
Despite multiple follow-ups, the prosecution did not serve any evidence for examination, which is required by law. After making an appeal to have all the evidence submitted, the prosecution balked at the overwhelming evidence in our favour, and dismissed the aggravated assault charges before it could be brought to trial. Thus, our client was fully acquitted, and went home a free man.
