Teacher Cleared of Assault on Appeal
Our Criminal Law Solicitors represented Mr O, a Teacher accused of assaulting his ex-partner.
After trial at the Magistrates Court, Mr O was convicted of one count but acquitted of the second. Mr O received a 3 year conditional discharge which resulted in his dismissal from work.
Despite advice from original Counsel confirming the lack of grounds for appeal, Stuart Miller Solicitors appealed the decision at the Crown Court where it was quashed and Mr O cleared.
