Ben Brown secures acquittal in a multi-handed attempted armed robbery trial


Ben’s client was one of two defendants charged with attempted robbery.  The co-defendant was alleged to have tried to gain entry to a house using distraction techniques, before Ben’s client was said to have brought a knife to the address and made demands.

The trial included consideration of a cut-throat defence, and reliance on expert psychological evidence in relation to the defendant’s IQ and ADHD.

Following the five day trial at Winchester Crown Court, Ben’s client was found ‘not guilty’ by the jury.  Ben was instructed by Trudi Burlton at PPB Criminal Law.
