R v HJ Gloucestershire Youth Court 2012

The defendant was charged with one offence of dwelling burglary. It appeared that the evidence against him was conclusive by virtue of the fact that his fingerprints were found on a cabinet inside the burgled premises. Through diligent enquiries from Hennessy & Hammudi we were able to ascertain that the cabinet had been bought at a second hand shop and that the cabinet had in fact been sold to the second hand shop by the uncle of the defendant, thus explaining his fingerprints on the cabinet. As a result, the Crown Prosecution Service offered no evidence and the case was dismissed.
