Mr. A was with a friend, Mr. Q, when Mr. Q bumped into an acquaintance riding on a scooter. After a short conversation, the friend gave Mr. Q the scooter for a short ride. Mr. A ran behind Mr. Q, as he was unfamiliar with the area. The friend returned with his uncle – who owned the scooter – and Mr. Q had a calm conversation with them both.
Mr. A’s surprise was palpable when he was later arrested for robbery and possession of a knife.
After contacting us to represent him, our defence lawyers immediately undertook a thorough legal investigation, to uncover the full story. After chasing the prosecution and the police for all evidence collected, criminal defence solicitors combed through the CCTV footage and interviewed multiple witnesses present at the scene. The investigation was meticulous, as our defence lawyers were determined to analyse every minor detail, to reveal the full picture.
The thorough investigation revealed that our client was wholly innocent – the police did not find a knife, or any weapon on him, during the arrest, and the CCTV footage showed the three conversing, with no threats made, or robbery committed.
Armed with the evidence, our criminal defence solicitors submitted a lengthy and robust defence in the courtroom. Faced with the facts, the prosecution had no choice but to accept defeat, and offer no evidence against our client, effectively acquitting him of all robbery and possession of a knife charges.
