Our 24-year-old client from Windsor was facing charges of hinder police and resist police.
This unfolded after he noticed that his friend was being arrested outside a Windsor pub, at which time our client approached his friend to ask if he wanted his mother to be contacted.
Police officers at the scene became rude and abrupt towards our client, and gave him a move on direction. Our client took out his phone to record police interactions and requested the police officers names, which was refused before our client was tackled to the ground and arrested by police.
The entire incident was recorded on camera which our managing lawyer Tayla Regan carefully looked into. After looking at the footage, we identified that the actions of police against our client were completely illegal.
As a result, our legal team got underway to begin negotiations with police to get the charges dropped. As a result, a detailed letter outlining the reasons why the charges should be withdrawn early was drafted (called ‘legal representation’) and sent to the prosecution. A copy of the camera footage taken by our client of the incident was also served to the prosecution.
In the result, the prosecution agreed to withdrawn all charges, dismissing the criminal proceedings.
It is worthwhile getting an experience team of criminal lawyers to look into a case, as not surprisingly there are issues that can be quickly identified that could lead to the case being dismissed early.
