In February 2023, one of our clients was accused of serious sexual offences following an internet date in 2021, amidst the aftermath of COVID-19 lockdowns. Despite these grave allegations, our client consistently maintained his innocence, asserting that all interactions were consensual. Initially represented by a duty solicitor, our client later relied on our expertise, and Director Nick Titchener took on the case.

With meticulous preparation and collaboration with Maria Karaiskos KC, our team navigated through a lengthy investigation by the Metropolitan Police. The case proceeded to trial in January 2024 at Isleworth Crown Court, where our client was ultimately acquitted of the most severe charges of rape and sexual assault by penetration.

Our defence strategy centred on robust witness evidence, including testimony highlighting our client’s character and his respectful conduct in prior relationships. This comprehensive approach effectively challenged the allegations, supporting our client’s consistent assertion of consent throughout.

At Lawtons, we specialise in navigating complex sexual offence cases with a focus on thorough preparation and dedicated advocacy. If you or someone you know is facing similar allegations, we are here to provide expert legal guidance and representation.
