Sexual Assault investigation Dropped For Our ClientNo further action - police dropped investigation
Case study summary
Our client was accused of sexual assault on his step-daughter. The allegation really came from his partner who he had reported already for blackmail. We defended him in police interview and carefully drafted a prepared statement. In the end we convinced police to drop the case.
Our client was a family man taking the role of father to his partner's daughter. The relationship turned sour, and he reported his partner for blackmail for something completely unrelated. In apparent revenge from his partner, our client found himself facing allegations of sexual assault against his teenage step-daughter. He contacted our specialist sexual offences solicitors to reprsent him at the police station.
At the police station we carefully drafted a detailed prepared statement highlighting the timeline of events and putting forward his denial. We opened the police's eyes to what was really going on here.
After consistent and regular pressure on the police for several months, they finally decided to take No Further Action and dropped the investigation entirely. As a result our client can now move on and put this dreadful part of his life behind him.
More cases we’ve defended
Our client was accused of sexual assault after a date with a woman. He was a professional man working for the NHS with a completely clean record. Our sexual assault lawyers advised him in detail in the interview and made written representations to the CPS, who dropped the case.
A neigbour's daughter accused our client of touching her chest, which he strongly denied. He came to us in order to ensure he had the best defence. We spent dozens of hours looking for the holes in the alleged victim's story, and we were able to prove our client's innocence.
We were instructed to represent a client during a lengthy and complex military investigation. Following comprehensive representations and the right advice at interview the matter was concluded with no further action.
