Alison Gurden successfully defends in racial abuse trial

25 July 2019

Alison Gurden, instructed by Football Law Associates, was successful in her defence of a football supporter accused of shouting racial abuse at a football match. The case was discontinued by the Crown Prosecution Service, on the eve of the trial, after Alison Gurden and Football Law Associates submitted legal arguments and statements to show that it was actually the Prosecution witness who was the person being abusive. The client had faced a prison sentence if convicted.
