The Allegation | Kangs Malicious Communications Defence Solicitors

The Prosecution alleged that, during the peak of the Covid 19 pandemic, our client:  

  • sent a communication to his partner at that time
  • which was malicious in nature and                                   
  • had been sent with intent to cause distress or anxiety.                    

How We Assisted Our Client | Kangs Criminal Defence Solicitors

Our client, denied that the communication was sent with any intent to cause fear and anxiety and by way of preparing his defence for Trial, the Team at Kangs Solicitors, inter alia:       

  • thoroughly examined all the material served by the Prosecution,
  • obtained disclosure of further evidence and material which would assist our client,
  • attended our client and, whilst obtaining his instructions in detail, advised him upon his position and the appropriate course to adopt,
  • obtained Character Witness Statements which supported our client,   
  • identified and instructed experienced counsel appropriate to present our client’s defence at court,
  • formulated a defence strategy in conferences with counsel and our client.  

The Successful Outcome | Kangs Crown Court Trial Solicitors

Following detailed discussions with the Prosecution on the morning of Trial, it was agreed by the Prosecution that it would offer no evidence to the Court, thereby avoiding the need for a Trial.

The matter was resolved in the following manner:

  • a ‘Not Guilty’ verdict was formally announced by the Court,
  • our client was bound over to ‘Keep the Peace’ for twelve months,
  • it was agreed that our client would make no future contact with the former partner. 

Our client was, of course, extremely delighted with the result.
