The Circumstances

Following arrest in February 2023, our client was initially represented by another firm of solicitors.

Following detention and Interview, our client was released on Police Bail until May 2023.

Upon being instructed by  our client, the Team at Kangs Solicitors:

  • Immediately made contact with the Police Officer in the case
  • Examined all available evidential material
  • Attended upon our client taking her full instructions, including the circumstances which gave rise to the allegations
  • Advised our client upon her position and upon the appropriate course to adopt
  • Attended, virtually with our client, Kingston Police Station when she was requested, at short notice, to attend regarding access to her social media account

The Satisfactory Outcome

Having maintained contact with the appropriate Police Officer regarding the investigation, we were delighted to subsequently inform our client that no further action was to be taken against her and that the allegations were not going to be pursued further.

Naturally, our client was delighted with this news.
