Mr. C was facing the consequences of a crime he had committed and was handed a community order filled with conditions he must fulfil. He was required to perform unpaid work and attend probation meetings but was accused of shirking his duties. The probation officer claimed that Mr. C failed to attend his assigned work and had no valid reason for doing so. But little did they know, the truth was about to come to light.
Through tireless research and collaboration with medical experts, our defence lawyers discovered a shocking revelation – Mr. C was suffering from a debilitating medical condition that rendered him unable to perform the required work. Armed with this information, our lawyers went to great lengths to validate his claim and ensure that every detail was meticulously investigated. With the help of his GP, they were able to present solid evidence in court, including medical notices provided to both Mr. C and the probation officer.
Our defence lawyers’ meticulous investigations also showed the lack of evidence from the probation officer, with witness statements, CCTV footage, and other forensic evidence. Thus, our lawyers were able to successfully argue that our client did have proof of a reasonable excuse. The probation officer quickly redacted the accusation after seeing our overwhelming evidence. Furthermore, our client’s community order was amended, to remove the unpaid work.
