Our client was a nightclub owner accused of directing an off-duty bouncer to seriously assault someone near the club.
There was CCTV evidence showing our client and the off-duty bouncer but the alleged assault was down the street and out of CCTV view.
The prosecution needed to link our client to the actual assault and wanted our client to participate in a line-up (identification parade).
We advised our client to consent to the line-up for a number of reasons.
In the end, the prosecution found it too difficult to arrange the line-up and the identification evidence was excluded by the court. The charges were dismissed. We were also awarded costs.
"He's got a very good tactical mind and is good with strategy ... great advocacy and comes to grips with the evidence."
