Opus Law Instructed in Baby Kidnap Plot Case

Ben Jones and Lisa Julian, Partners, were both instructed in this unusual and difficult case. From arrest at the police station to the final sentence hearing, we advised and assisted K throughout this prosecution involving a highly unusual set of facts.

 

The case was complex and required careful case management in the representation of our client who was a youth at the time of the offence. All avenues were explored as we built a strong case in mitigation. Opus Law utilised its skills and resources to obtain relevant reports that were placed before the court. The case shows our dedication and capability to represent vulnerable youths who find themselves charged with the most serious of crimes.

 

Due to the serious nature of this case, Miss Elaine Stapleton of Carmelite Chambers was instructed as counsel.

 

This case has, unsurprisingly,  already attracted a vast amount of coverage in the  national press:
