Sarah Cook Secures Acquittal for Client in Criminal Appeal Trial

by Kenworthy's Chambers 02/06/2017

Sarah Cook, on her first day of 2nd sixth pupillage, secured an acquittal for her client in an appeal against conviction trial at Minshull Street Crown Court. The client was appealing an assault conviction; where it was alleged he committed a number of assaults against the complainant. The trial involved evidence from 6 witnesses, in addition to photographs and mobile phone evidence - the Crown also applied to maintain the restraining order originally imposed at the Magistrates Court, which Sarah successfully opposed too.
