Robyn Murdo-Smith instructed by Senan Boland of Cantaris Locke Solicitors, secures acquittal for a client charged with causing Grievous Bodily Harm following a deep cut to the complainant’s thigh.

The client had been charged with slashing his ex partner’s thigh with a silver coloured knife and causing a deep cut.  The client’s case was that he had taken a kitchen knife away from the complainant after she had stabbed him and had placed it in the rear pocket of his jeans. During the ensuing struggle the complainant who had had been kicking him on his back received a deep cut to her thigh after it came into contact with the knife protruding from his back pocket.  Following a three-day trial at Wood Green Crown Court the jury returned a unanimous verdict of Not Guilty on Friday 31st March 2017 after deliberating for just one hour.
