Mr. A was arrested on offences of witness intimidation and harassment without violence after being coerced into messaging the complainant, Ms. S, by the defendant, Mr. O. Mr. O was arrested on charges of stalking and was ordered not to contact the complainant. Mr. A, however, was an uninvolved third party, and was arrested after sending messages to Ms. S on Mr. O’s behalf, thereby allowing Mr. O to break his bail condition and contact the complainant.
Our criminal defence solicitors sprang into action as soon as our client reached out to us. They left no stone unturned in their quest for the truth, relentlessly pursuing the police and prosecution for every scrap of evidence, even any that had not yet been disclosed. They scrutinized every piece of information with a discerning eye, sifting through multiple witness statements and character references to form a winning legal strategy. Ultimately, they proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that our client had acted under duress, completely unaware of the witness intimidation charges.
Despite revealing this information during the police interview, the prosecution ignored this and continued with the false witness intimidation charges. By providing factual evidence that backed our client’s claims, our criminal defence solicitors were able to prove beyond a doubt that our client was innocent. Faced with such overwhelming evidence, the prosecution was forced to discontinue the case and drop all charges, acquitting our client.
