Acquittals secured for attempted robbery and unlawful wounding
Our client was 18 years old at the time of charge, and was extremely vulnerable. She has a history of trauma and mental health issues. She was prosecuted in relation to one count of attempted robbery and one count of unlawful wounding.
During our case preparation, we instructed a psychologist to asses our client to help better understand her past trauma. The case took two years to come to trial, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, after a four day trial at Kingston Crown Court, the jury unanimously acquitted our client of all counts. Our client was extremely relieved.
