Appeals and CCRC

R v K (2018) (Croydon CC) Successful appeal against conviction for a client charged with assaulting a police officer and obstructing an enforcement agent. The legal argument put forward was that the bailiff was not acting lawfully and therefore the police were acting outside the execution of their duties.

R v J (2018) (Reading CC) Successful appeal against sentence for a client charged with breaching his Criminal Behaviour Order, which in turn activated his suspended sentence. The new sentence secured his immediate release from prison.

R v L (2017) (Woolwich CC) Successful appeal against conviction in a sexual assault case where the client was suffering from schizophrenia.
