Client Released After Successful Appeal of Fraud Conviction
Miss M had been represented by another firm of Solicitors and convicted of an offence of Fraud. She received a custodial sentence and was in prison when she approached Stuart Miller Solicitors' expert Fraud Solicitors.
Our Fraud Solicitors carefully scrutinised the entire case and found legal mistakes which were relied upon to lodge an Appeal against the length of the sentence.
The Court of Appeal agreed with the submission from our Fraud Solicitors that the sentence was far too harsh for the offence committed. Thus, Miss M's Appeal was successful and her sentence was reduced to the extent that she was immediately released from prison.
