Mr. S was arrested for charges of racially aggravated assault, assault occasioning actual bodily harm, and racially aggravated harassment, after an argument with a staff member from the supermarket, Superdrug. The arrest followed Mr. S getting into a verbal argument with a staff member after he saw the staff ill-treat other shoppers, namely two old women. Despite trying to stand up for them, Mr. S wound up getting arrested on trumped up charges of assault and racially aggravated harassment.
Our team of fearless assault solicitors sprang into action, launching a full-scale investigation into the evidence. As they dug deeper, it became clear that Mr. S was actually the victim here. The CCTV recordings told the story – the staff member had grabbed our client, leaving him with no choice but to defend himself. Witnesses corroborated his account, and even Mr. S’s call to the police was made in an effort to report the staff member’s aggressive behaviour.
Despite our clear and objective evidence, they still charged our client with racially aggravated harassment and assault occasioning actual body harm offenses. That’s when our team went into overdrive, determined to clear his name and restore justice.
Armed with mountains of evidence that pointed to our client’s innocence, our assault solicitors formulated an effective legal strategy that highlighted the evidence in key stages, pointed out the prosecution’s wilful ignorance of the facts, and pushed for our client’s innocence. In the face of such evidence, the prosecution had no choice but to drop all the charges, and the judge immediately declared our client as not guilty.
