We have successfully applied to get convictions set aside in two cases this week as a result of the Randox scandal.
In a recent case His Honour Judge Jeremy Richardson QC was challenged with the task of sentencing 3 offenders for the roles they played in causing the death of 4 people, as well as seriously injuring 3 others. The most significant sentence handed out was 11 ½ years to Elliot Bower, who was the main offender.

Nowadays reporting via social media can happen very quickly and it is often one of the things not thought about by those facing criminal proceedings.
There has been a lot of discussion about the sentence passed following Ant McPartlin’s (Ant and Dec) conviction for drink driving.
Over the festive periods of Christmas and the new year one might enjoy the well earned break with a tipple or two.
