Case Study


R v S – Leeds Crown Court

Andrew Stewardson was instructed to act as defence solicitor on behalf of a bus driver charged with causing death by careless driving.  The death occurred whilst the defendant was driving near to the city centre bus station.  We began acting as defence solicitor after the defendant had been charged.  

Following a thorough review of the case by Andrew Stewardson, including consideration of CCTV, traffic collision report and witness statements it was decided that despite the decision to prosecute there were grounds to argue that the defendant did not have a case to answer.

A legal submission of no case to answer was sent to the Crown Prosecution Service on behalf of the defendant.  Following a review of that argument the Crown Prosecution Service withdrew the prosecution.

R v LS – York Crown Court

Rob Rode was instructed to act on behalf of the defendant whilst they were under investigation by North Yorkshire Police for causing death by dangerous driving.  Eventually, charged with causing death by careless driving the case involved a collision with a motorcyclist whilst the defendant was performing a manoeuvre on a busy road.

Rob prepared the case as the defence solicitor for the trial at York Crown Court.  The defendant was acquitted after trial of the charges.

R v A – Leeds Magistrates’ Court

Keith Allen was asked to act as defence solicitor on behalf of a client wishing to defend himself against allegations of drink driving (OPL).  The client was arrested from his vehicle and provided a sample to the police indicating that he was over the prescribed limit.

Following a review of the evidence and Keith Allen established that there had been a number of procedural improprieties by the Police.  Keith acted in the Magistrates’ Court trial as defence solicitor and was able to successfully argue that the evidence obtained by the Police should be excluded from the trial and the case for the Crown collapsed.
