Acquittals Of 2 Men Accused Of Historic GBH
Criminal Law Specialist Solicitors at these offices were appointed to represent two men alleged to have caused Grievous Bodily Harm with Intent, which is a very serious violent offence, carrying lengthy sentences of imprisonment.
The offence dated back to 2009. It was alleged that our clients approached the victim and beat him with weapons. Our client's failed to answer bail for three years and were on the run.
In 2013, our clients returned to the UK and were arrested at the airport.
The prosecution could not find the victim in the case and made an application to rely solely on the written statement from the victim, taken 4 years ago.
Our Criminal Defence Solicitors argued against the application and were successful.
The case was dismissed and our clients acquitted.
