Another Rape Acquittal
Ashcott Criminal Solicitors together with Andrew Fitch-Holland senior Counsel of Goldsmith Chambers London have today secured the acquittal of a client charged with Rape at Manchester crown Court. The result is perhaps all the more remarkable in that the Crowns case was that the defendant had admitted the crime by text message shortly after the alleged incident.
The manner in which Mr Fitch-Holland dealt with that potentially disastrous evidence was quite simply brilliant and it clearly fell away in the jury deliberations. It demonstrates why Ashcott Solicitors policy of instructing experienced senior barristers well versed in presenting trials before juries as opposed to half cocked in-house solicitor advocates is a winning strategy for justice.
Justice before profit will always be the motto of Ashcott Criminal Solicitors
