Cases

R v D & Others

Defending in a wide-ranging conspiracy to defraud centred on the entertainment industry. The allegation was that six named Defendants had conspired together, and with others unknown, to sell fake tickets and wristbands for entry into music festivals in England. The conspiracy was alleged to have been operative for a period of six years, with a value of almost £2million. At the close of the Prosecution case, on a submission of no case to answer it was submitted that the indictment alleged an agreement to commit more than one offence. The Judge agreed with the Defence submissions that (i) although a single agreement was charged, it had multiple objectives, (ii) the evidence did not support the Crown’s contention that the Defendant was a party to a multiple objective conspiracy, and (iii) there was no evidence the Defendant had attached herself to the wider conspiracy charged in the indictment. The Prosecution appealed the terminating ruling to the Court of Appeal. The Defence successfully resisted the appeal; the Judge’s ruling was upheld and the client acquitted.

R v A & Others

A large-scale conspiracy to commit misconduct in public office, and conspiracy to obtain UK passports by deception. This was a sensitive case involving a DWP employee with managerial responsibility working at the heart of a key Government agency. Identity documents were processed and passed to a large number of foreign nationals who were not entitled to hold them; the Defendant was central to the operation.
