Sarah Read secures acquittal in indecent images case.

 

Sarah’s client was a young man of good character charged with making indecent images of children.  At the trial, Sarah made a successful submission of no case to answer at the end of the prosecution case in relation to three out of four charges. The prosecution initially sought a re-trial in relation to the outstanding count.  Sarah then assisted on drafting representations to the prosecution to argue that there was not a realistic prospect of conviction.  Following consideration of these representations, the prosecution offered no evidence.

 

Sarah was instructed by John Armstrong of Armstrong Solicitors.
