Senior In-House Counsel Edward Fenner instructed by Claire Dissington secured the acquittal of a young person charged with stabbing another in the street. The vulnerable young person was 14 at the time of the allegation and is now 15. They secured specialist help for ‘A’ to enable his effective participation during the trial process and give evidence on the issue of self defence. He was granted an intermediary for the whole Trial. The Jury at Snaresbrook Crown Court unanimously found ‘A’ not guilty of both wounding with intent (s18 GBH) and wounding in the alternative (s20 GBH).
