Jonathan Page successfully defends a self-confessed paedophile vigilante.

Jonathan Page represented OI who was lead defendant on an indictment alleging blackmail, false imprisonment and kidnap. OI’s target had been grooming and had arranged to meet a “15-year-old” girl using Tinder and WhatsApp. In reality the girl did not exist and the complainant was met by OI and the second defendant. The complainant alleged that he was kidnapped and falsely imprisoned in OI’s car and then blackmailed for £8,000. Both defendants were acquitted on all counts after trial. 

Jonathan was instructed by Nigel McLean from Dhanji McLean Solicitors.  The trial took place at Reading Crown Court.
