Case study summary

Our client, a 60-year-old woman, was accused of causing criminal damage to a vehicle. We advanced representations regarding her health to ensure that she received a caution and was not prosecuted in court.

Case study

Our client had been accused of hitting her sister’s vehicle with her walking stick after an argument at her address. Footage, captured from the doorbell camera, clearly showed her hitting the car and smashing one of the windows. She had been asked to participate in a voluntary interview and came to our specialist lawyers for representation.

We attended the interview and advanced a prepared statement on her behalf, highlighting her remorse and mental state at the time. After the interview, we made further representations to the police regarding her physical and mental health and questioned whether prosecution through the court system would be the best course of action. In the end, the police relented and offered our client a caution instead.

Conditional discharge - no criminal penalty
