Laura Paisley secures not guilty verdicts to three counts of making indecent photographs of a child.


This case involved careful handling of expert evidence relating to how files are generated on Apple devices and exploration of the operation of the Apple iCloud.

Laura made considered comments regarding the opportunity for online hackers to break into Apple IDs in sophisticated and innovative ways, leaving devices and online accounts susceptible to being compromised, even without the knowledge of the possessor of a device. After a three day trial, her client, a young man of good character, was unanimously acquitted by the jury.

Laura was instructed by Thompson & Co Solicitors.
