Mr. N had suffered a bitter break up with his partner, resulting in a tumultuous relationship with his ex-partner and the mother of his two children. Though the break-up was bitter, Mr. N tried to maintain a relationship with his children, but ended up in multiple arguments with his ex-partner – this escalated until Mr. N was arrested on charges of stalking, malicious communications, and making threats to kill.
Mr. N then contacted us to uncover the truth of the matter, and our defence lawyers sprang into action to determine the facts of the case. After meticulously analysing all evidence submitted by the prosecution, our criminal defence solicitors conducted their own thorough legal investigation. This included speaking to our client’s friends, family members, neighbours, and co-workers to gather witness statements, working with forensic experts to analyse CCTV footage, and working with mobile phone experts to analyse any and all mobile phone evidence – including text messages and chat histories – between the two. Our criminal defence solicitors discovered that the situation was fraught with tension, that our client was trying to see his children, and that his ex-partner had falsely accused him of stalking, malicious communication and of treats to kill.
During the trial, our criminal defence solicitors submitted overwhelming evidence that pointed to our client’s innocence – including statements that proved that our client did not cause any damage to his ex-partner’s home, did not send malicious messages, and did not follow her. Furthermore, his ex-partner’s testimony was unstable, and fell apart under our defence lawyers’ rigorous questioning – proving that the allegation was false. The jury immediately acquitted our client of all charges of stalking and threats to kill, allowing our client to go home a free man.
