Client Serves Three Months In Jail Instead of Eight Years
The Situation: We represented a client charged with grievous bodily harm, who was facing the likelihood of eight years imprisonment.
The Result: We successfully ran a trial resulting in a guilty finding on the lesser charge of assault occasioning bodily harm rather than intent to do grievous bodily harm. This resulted in the client serving three months imprisonment rather than some eight years jail.
