In this case the defendant along with four others was charged with conspiracy to pervert the course of justice arising out of an accident in which a person died following a road traffic collision. The prosecution alleged that the defendant conspired together with others within the West Yorkshire and Lincolnshire region to conceal the vehicle that had been involved in a fatal road traffic collision in order to frustrate the police investigation, with intent to prevent the course of justice.

If convicted the defendant would have received a lengthy custodial sentence.

After careful and considerable negotiations with the prosecution and continued representations to them, Ashmans Solicitors were able to ensure that the case against the defendant was discontinued.
