Sukhdip Randhawa, who represented our client, reports upon the circumstances.
Case Preparation | Kangs Criminal Defence Team
Following his suspension from school, due to the police investigation, our client instructed this firm and we supported him by:
- taking detailed instructions.
- arranging and attending with him at a police station for a voluntary interview.
- examining CCTV footage that allegedly showed our client pushing the thirteen year old into the school corridor.
- advising our client upon his position and attending with him when he entered a not guilty plea at court.
- conducting a site visit at the school.
- liaising with the intermediary appointed by the Court in relation to cross examination of the thirteen year old.

After our client had given evidence, the District Judge acquitted him of the charge that he faced.
Our client was extremely relieved as any conviction would have prematurely ended his career in the teaching profession.
