Lead Lawyer

Case study summary

Our client was accused of possessing indecent images and was unrepresented in his initial interview. He then asked us to represent him and consider his case in detail. We carefully advised our client and engaged with the police. This resulted in the investigation being dropped.

Case study

Our client was an IT professional and family man who had never been in trouble with the police before. He was checked by DBS regularly and stood to lose his job and livelihood if he had any type of criminal conviction.

Following a knock at the door in the early hours, police raided his home and took electronic devices belonging to him, and accused him of looking at indecent images of children.

As he was shocked and scared having never been in this type of situation before, he did not exercise his right to legal representation in his first interview with the police.

However, after that interview, he realised the seriousness of even being under investigation and instructed our specialist solicitors to discuss the investigation and what had happened so far. We gathered as much information as possible to create a full picture of him and his background, before contacting the police and engaging with them.

Within a few weeks, we received confirmation from the police that they would not be continuing with the investigation and the case was dropped.

He was able to move forward with his life and his good name in tact.
