Jail Avoided in Conspiracy to Pervert the Course of Justice Case
Ben Jones, Director, represented A in a large case which involved 18 defendants before the Newcastle Crown Court.
A was charged with many others with a conspiracy which involved the ‘getting rid of’ notices of intended prosecution requiring them to identify the driver of a motoring offence. False details were added to the notice, along with empty addresses, meaning that over time the offences would expire and persons would avoid prosecution.
Our client eventually pleaded guilty to just one offence and a mitigation was built upon his instructions. This allowed counsel to present verbally a considered and compelling mitigation that resulted in our client receiving a suspended sentence.
John Wilkinson of Trinity Chambers was instructed in this case.
