Acquittal at Maidstone Crown Court

On 12 February 2016, our client was acquitted on four counts of rape and sexual assault on a girl under the age of 13. This was an historic case in which the complainant alleged she had been abused over a 3-year period by our client. However, the jury unanimously acquitted him having deliberated for less than an hour following a week-long trial.

This case was meticulously prepared by Tony Meisels and counsel was Brian St Louis of 15 New Bridge Street chambers. Lewis Nedas has extensive experience in cases involving historic allegations of sexual abuse.

Harassment Prosecution Acquittal for Lewis Nedas Client

domesticOur client, a professional man of good character, was alleged to have followed and harassed his estranged wife over a limited period.

During an all day trial in the Magistrates’ Court, our client produced a number of suits which he counter-alleged that his estranged wife had cut to pieces, together with a long series of emails from her sent to a colleague of his (several times a day), as well as his wife’s economic responses to the financial questionnaire in their divorce proceedings. Following this, our client was acquitted by a lay bench of magistrates when they concluded that her evidence did not sustain robust cross-examination. Our client stated that he believed that the allegation of harassment was raised in order that she prevent him from having access to their children.

Unan Choudhury was the solicitor and the superb Gerry Mohabir of the Public Defence Service was the barrister instructed.

Two Acquittals for LNL & James Reilly Last Week

gavelHandling Stolen Goods

James appeared in Bolton Crown Court to represent the owner of a highly respected car salvage company who faced the very serious allegation of attempting to handle stolen goods, namely stolen cable from Network Rail.

Undercover officers approached our client and his staff on six occasions with this apparently stolen cable and on each occasion, our client and his staff refused. On the final approach, however, the Police changed the appearance of the cable completely by stripping it of any identifying markings, and this time the officer did not suggest that it was stolen.

After some robust submissions on the law of entrapment, the very senior trial judge decided that the police had (once again) “crossed the line” by placing our client under undue pressure, and stayed the proceedings against our client. A not guilty verdict was recorded on all counts.

This is the latest in a series of trials focusing on those in the salvage and waste management business, which have resulted in acquittals for James and Sean Reilly’s clients. The Reilly brothers have successfully acted in these cases up and down the country.

Driving under the Influence of Alcohol

We acted for a foreign national who was accused of driving over the limit; however, our client did not speak English. He was taken to the police station where there appeared to be serious issues with the police station procedure and medical issues which were not addressed.

The case was listed for a not guilty trial and, in the meantime, the firm requested a copy of the police station CCTV showing the Lion Intoximeter test, and wrote to the CPS several times requesting additional material. None of our correspondence was ever replied to and, even on the day of trial, the requested CCTV evidence was not produced.

As a result, our client was acquitted.
