Mr. A, a high-school student at the time of the alleged offence, was arrested for sexual assault charges after the victim claimed that he and his friends assaulted her in the park; the claim was verified by a teacher who was walking through the park and partially witnessed the incident.
Upon contacting us, our defence lawyers immediately sprang into action, in order to tackle this as quickly and efficiently as possible.

A thorough investigation was conducted, which included verifying and re-verifying all the evidence submitted, getting witness statements from the other students, and working closely with our client to establish a sequence of events.
By cross-examining witness statements and interview recordings from the police, our defence solicitors submitted overwhelming evidence to the police that thoroughly proved our client’s innocence. Faced with such evidence, the police had no choice but to drop all charges and clear our client’s name.
