Stephanie Panchkowry secured unanimous acquittal in a s.18 wounding offence


Unanimous acquittal in a s.18 wounding offence and s.20 in the alternative. An independent witness saw the complainant lying on his back, unresponsive, with his arms by his side. He was said to be out cold when the defendant was stood over him, drawing his leg back and kicking his head “like a football”. The defence was one of self-defence. The complainant suffered fractures to his nose and jaw, with his teeth becoming dislodged and broken.

Stephanie was instructed by Michelle Simpson from Amosu Robinshaw.
