Notable recent cases include:-
R v H (2012/2013) – Robert represents a Defendant who is one of eight charged with various offences arising from the Murder of a young man by shooting. The allegation is that the Murder is a tit-for-tat response following the stabbing of H a few weeks previously.
R v S (2012/2013) – Robert successfully represented this 18 year old Defendant charged alongside her boyfriend with Possession of two Firearms and a significant quantity of expanding Ammunition. The ammunition had been used only a few weeks earlier when officers had been fired upon. Although such offences normally attract a minimum sentence of 5 years’ imprisonment, following conviction the Defendant was in fact sentenced to a suspended sentence of imprisonment.
