Jonathan Green wins Manslaughter acquittal

20 January 2021

After a 2 week trial at Snaresbrook Crown Court, Jonathan Green secured a not guilty verdict for a man charged with manslaughter. This was a highly dramatic trial, in which, during cross-examination, the main prosecution witness claimed, for the first time, to have seen the defendant commit the killing.

The defendant relied on self-defence, which was disputed by eye-witness testimony and evidence from the prosecution's pathologist. Against considerable odds, however, Jonathan was able to persuade the jury to acquit him.

He was instructed by Lewis Nedas Law.
