Confessions are not the final word

Home » Uncategorized » Confessions are not the final word

Mark Troman recently represented a man who, when advised by the duty solicitor, confessed to drug possession after numerous quantities of a class A drug were found in his home.  He found us by recommendation and asked for our help. He had confessed in a misguided attempt to protect another from the consequneces.  By carefully listening to a complex personal history, Mark was able to build a defence to set that unreliable confession in its true context and was pleased when the jury unanimously acquitted the client.  To compound matters, the client was a member of a professional body and was not properly advised of the ramifications of his actions.  We urge people to ensure they call out our specialist criminal defence solicitors from the outset, had we been instructed from the start it is likely this lengthy case could have been avoided.


RT @forensicequity "We thank you for your expert report. We confirm that it is the Crown’s intention to apply to amend the indictment...the Crown will offer no evidence in relation to Count 1" Delighted that our Principle Scientist, Anne Franc, with @PSPLAWUK successfully reduced drug charges
