Ashmans forced the CPS to review and discontinue a case after the first Trial had to be aborted.

Our client was accused with 2 others of being involved in multiple Armed Robberies in the counties of Yorkshire (South) and Derbyshire with the use of firearms to steal high-value vehicles. He had been positively identified by the victims following VIPER procedures and also had attributed to him a SIM card that was used to communicate with the victims in advance of the crimes.

Whilst on remand Ashmans were able to locate and have defence experts interrogate and attribute a phone that we asserted belonged to our client and that the police had failed to seize. This showed that he was in fact in an entirely different county during the material times and that the positive identifications of him were flawed.
