The Circumstances | Kangs Serious Crime Defence Solicitors
- Our client was originally arrested in November 2021 under suspicion of numerous offences. Upon being charged with Sexual Assault and Assault Occasioning Actual Bodily Harm, our client changed his legal representation and instructed this firm
- The Complainant alleged that our client had, whilst trying to engage her in sexual intercourse, which she had refused, inflicted physical violence including repeatedly punching and kicking her
The Relevant Law | Kangs Sexual Assault Offences Defence Solicitors
The Sexual Offences Act 2003 states:
Section 3 Sexual Assault
‘ (1) A person (A) commits an offence if—
(a) he intentionally touches another person (B),
(b) the touching is sexual,
(c ) B does not consent to the touching, and
(d) A does not reasonably believe that B consents.’
Assault occasioning Actual Bodily Harm (ABH)
The Offences against the Person Act 1861 – Section 47
The offence is committed when a person intentionally or recklessly assaults another, thereby causing Actual Bodily Harm. It must be proved that the assault occasioned or caused the bodily harm.
Bodily harm has its ordinary meaning and includes any hurt calculated to interfere with the health or comfort of the victim: such hurt need not be permanent, but must be more than transient and trifling: (R v Donovan  2 KB 498).
Preparation for Trial | Kangs Assault Offences Defence Solicitors
Our client vehemently denied the charges against him and by way of preparation for his Trial, the Team at Kangs Solicitors:
- analysed in full all the Prosecution served evidence and unused material,
- attended our client taking his detailed instructions on all of the evidence and unused material served by the Prosecution and recording his version of events,
- prepared our client’s detailed Proof of Evidence and Comments on the Prosecution evidence,
- advised our client in detail upon his position and the future conduct of his defence,
- represented our client at all Court Hearings,
attended Witnesses obtaining detailed Statements in support of our client,
- identified and instructed Counsel of the highest calibre and attended all requisite conferences with both our client and counsel whilst preparing for trial,
- prepared a detailed Defence Case Statement which outlined our clients defence and which contained numerous requests for Disclosure of pertinent evidence from the Prosecution.
The Successful Outcome | Kangs Sexual Offences Defence Solicitors
Following the service of our client’s detailed Defence Statement, the Prosecution requested further time to review and consider its case and the numerous requests we had submitted for the service of further important detail.
Subsequently, the Prosecution confirmed that, upon the evidence, there was no realistic prospect of achieving a conviction against our client.
The Case was listed at Court for a Mention Hearing at which the Prosecution offered no evidence to both charges and the Court, as a matter of course, entered ‘Not Guilty’ verdicts.
Our client was obviously delighted and relieved that he had retained his impeccable good character and that the severe stress and worry that he had endured was finally at an end.
He left Court encouraged that his stance had been vindicated by the fact that he had been cleared of all charges and that the allegations were not sufficient to even justify a Trial.
