Maria and Joanne recently worked with a retired vicar who had experienced false allegations being made against him.

The matter was fully investigated by the police and, with our assistance, swiftly concluded at the initial police station stage with No further action taken.

The client was not arrested and a voluntary interview was swiftly arranged as soon as we were made aware of the allegations against our client.
