Alphege Bell secures unanimous acquittal in case where client was accused with co-defendants of shooting a man in the bottom twice and discharging a firearm in a public street in broad daylight in Bristol

01/10/2021

This was a very difficult case which arose when there was a confrontation in the middle of a busy Bristol Street. There were a large number of civilian eye witnesses who saw a shocking episode of violence which culminated in a man being shot twice at point blank range in the bottom. Those witnesses gave evidence against the defendants at Bristol Crown Court and made it very difficult for the defence. The defendant was unanimously acquitted of all charges.  Alphege was instructed by Rachael Archer of Wainwright and Cummins Solicitors.
