R v A Oxford Crown Court 2016
The defendant was charged with one count of grievous bodily harm. This case was difficult due to the defendant’s learning difficulties and mental health difficulties. Notwithstanding this, after a full trial the jury reached a verdict of not guilty and the case against our client was dismissed. The court were provided with information from a psychologist and psychiatrist instructed by Hennessy & Hammudi in order to assist in understanding how the defendant’s mental health difficulties would impact on his ability to exercise judgement.
