Indecent Images - Suspended Prison sentence - 2019
We represented a high-profile businessman of standing in the community who pleaded guilty to possession of indecent images. He possessed more than 500 images with a mixture of Cat A, Cat B, and Cat C. The case was highly publicised in the media.
He was able to meet with our senior lawyers and we thoroughly prepared his mitigation. The benefit of having an experienced team led to him receiving full credit for his early guilty plea at court. The case was so serious that the starting point was a prison sentence in the region of 2 to 3 years however with the thorough and detailed preparation and representation we provided he received a suspended prison sentence with community-based requirements.
Engaging senior lawyers are essential in order to receive the best advice early in serious cases. We were able to engage a senior barrister in this field to advise and represent early in the proceedings. Thorough preparation and client service avoided an immediate prison sentence.
We have an excellent track record of representing clients where a non-custodial sentence was achieved.
If you believe your case is likely to have serious consequences for you now, or in the future, and you have the means to pay for this service please read more about our bespoke private fee service.
