Case study summary

Case study

Our client was a consultant working in the energy sector, and had been accused of making indecent images and inciting sexual activity. Inciting is more likely to result in a prison sentence. He had accepted to police that he had known about the images on his device before he retained us to defend him.

After tough negotiation with the prosecution, we were able to get the inciting charge dropped. We then put together a detailed mitigation package for the court to ensure that they knew about his background and the efforts that he had made to address his behaviour since his initial arrest.

Our efforts paid off and he received a non-custodial sentence for the outstanding charges.
