John Waller secured the unanimous acquittal of a client who faced trial in relation to Aggravated Burglary. The Jury returned with a unanimous acquittal after only 25 minutes of deliberation. It was alleged by the Crown that the defendant had broken into his neighbours flat and held a knife to his throat demanding both drugs and money. This was witnessed by another member of the household. The Crown also relied on the independent evidence of a neighbour who the defendant was alleged to have told that he was going to break into the flat and to not call the police if he heard something.
John was instructed by MMA Solicitors.
