Phil Priestley of Opus Law represented I, a defendant who stood trial at Bristol Crown Court charged with a serious offence of  Section 18 Wounding. The complainant suffered multiple stab wounds and it was alleged that I also stamped  on the neck of the complainant.

 

The defence case was meticulously prepared and a pathologist instructed to deal with the injuries described by the prosecution expert.

 

The Jury was sworn and a 4 day trial took place, during  which the defendant ran self-defence. The jury deliberated for only 3 hours before returning a unanimous verdict of NOT GUILTY.

 

Afterwards the defendant who had been in custody for 6 months and his family thanked his legal team for their superb efforts.

 

Counsel: Gerard Hillman of Carmelite Chambers London
