Our client, who was a foreign national, was found not guilty following his trial at Harrow Crown Court.
He had been referred to Stephen Halloran of Lawtons as a result of his reputation in dealing with sexual assault offences. The case involved an alleged assault on public transport and, as a result of police failings before Lawtons became involved, crucial evidence had not been secured.
The client was privately funding the case and was able to ensure that Stephen dealt with his case, and a leading QC was also instructed to present our case at court. A clear defence was planned from the outset and this professional approach ensured that the client was found not guilty by the jury within 15 minutes.
