Philip Farr, leading Giles Fleming and instructed by Justine Potter at Credence Law solicitors, this week concluded a complex and sensitive 6 week trial at Cambridge Crown Court. Philip and Giles’ client, who was charged with rape and assault in the context of an allegedly violent relationship, was unanimously acquitted. The complainant’s evidence was successfully challenged through the careful use of substantial background material, which had been disclosed at the defence request.
