Cases

R v L (2018)

Fiona represented an individual charged with murder in relation to a group attack on a gang rival. Following simmering tensions between rival gangs the victim’s group attacked the defendant’s group into a park. The group were quickly outnumbered whereupon the victim was chased down an alleyway and attacked by the defendant’s group armed with golf clubs, bats and machetes.

R v A (2018)

Representing a youth accused of rape and sexual activity with a child. The case concerned expert evidence on whether the defendant’s ADHD, Autism and learning disability would have affected his reasonable belief in consent. The defendant was acquitted of all counts after trial.

R v B (2018)

B was accused of trafficking her best friend from Cyprus to the UK, via Romania, and forcing her to work as a prostitute. The CPS failed to disclose vital evidence until 17 days into the trial, leading HHJ Perrins to order an inquiry. Following extensive cross examination of B in light of the new material the CPS offered no evidence on all counts.

R v M (2017)

Represented an individual accused of breaking into his neighbour’s home at night and raping her at knifepoint while her family were in the house.

R v H (2017)

Represented an individual accused of the repeated rape of his niece in the 1980s. The defendant was acquitted on all accounts following a trial.
