Vulnerable teenage defendant acquitted of robbery with a weapon.  

02/09/2022

Chloe’s client – a vulnerable female teenager – was accused of having robbed a much older man involving an attack to the head with a kettle in the early hours of the morning.

The defendant was acquitted unanimously following a 5-day trial at Reading Crown Court.

Chloe had successfully applied for an intermediary to be present throughout the trial to support her client’s communication capabilities. The case involved careful consideration of adaptations to the trial process and Ground Rules Hearings.

Chloe was instructed by Neil Sarkar at IBB Law.
