Ashmans secure an acquittal after Judge stops the case at half time.

Our client was accused of s.18 GBH after slashing another inmate to the face with an improvised knife. He had been transferred prisons whilst awaiting sentence for an unrelated matter and within 30 minutes of arriving at his new prison, he was witnessed by a prison security officer and also recorded on CCTV being in possession of a knife and assaulting another male.

Having been forceful in our cross-examination of the prison security officer the Court conceded at the half way point that there was no case to answer and the case was dismissed.
