Terrific outcome obtained today by Drystone Chambers Georgia Luscombe with her client being acquitted of section 18 and 20 GBH. Unanimous verdicts returned by jury in under an hour of deliberating!
The allegation was that the defendant had stabbed his step-father through the hand, causing a deep wound which affected the use of his hand. The defendant had maintained throughout that it was his step-father who attempted to stab him and in doing so must have slashed his own hand.
Georgia was instructed by Holly Burton & Courtney Cole of Hine Solicitors.
