Mr. K faced another unfair rental increase from his landlord and was determined to fight the increase. After messaging the landlord about this, the landlord threatened eviction and sent an eviction notice. Aware that he was already paying above market rates for his apartment and that this eviction was unfair, Mr. K approached the landlord’s door and knocked, but received no answer.
Imagine his surprise when Mr. K found himself facing charges of making threats to kill his landlord, and being placed under arrest.
Determined to prove the truth against the threats to kill accusations, Mr. K asked us to represent him. Our murder lawyers immediately sprang to action, ready to turn every stone to uncover the truth of the matter. After meticulously analysing all evidence submitted by the police and the prosecution, our criminal defence solicitors conducted their own thorough legal investigation. After carefully reviewing CCTV footage, conducting interviews with our client and his friends and family members, analysing our client’s text messages and phone calls, and reviewing all evidence submitted by the prosecution, our murder lawyers were able to gather enough evidence to prove our client right.
Carefully analysing the CCTV footage revealed that our client had gone up to the landlord’s door long enough to knock, wait for a response, and leave after hearing no response. Our client’s text messages and call history revealed that he had not met the landlord in over one year. Even during his arrest, the police initially arrested him for harassment, and then changed the charge to making threats to kill.
Armed with evidence that these charges were falsely and maliciously made, our criminal defence solicitors submitted overwhelming evidence to the court, proving that our client is in fact a victim of a landlord who’s manipulating the justice system against him. Faced with the truth, the magistrates immediately acquitted him, recognising that he was falsely accused. Finally, our client was able to have his innocence and his reputation restored.
