High profile case discontinued after exhaustive efforts by the defence. The defendant was originally investigated in relation to a number of sexual assault matters, following representations by the defence and a lengthy investigation by the police.
CPS indicated that there was to be “no further action” in relation to cases involving a number of complainants.
However, some charges did proceed to a full court hearing. The court case was eventually discontinued after comprehensive work was completed in relation to factual inconsistencies and expert evidence was obtained by the defence.
The team from Monan Gozzett - Maria Monan, Stephanie Dew and Mellissa Piggott - worked with Siobhan Grey KC in relation to this case.’
