A city insurance broker, who was represented by Lewis Power QC, has had his s18 charge dismissed at Inner London Crown Court this week. The conflict in this case stemmed from sexual comments made to the Defendant’s daughter by a colleague and resulted in the Defendant lashing out when he thought that he was under attack. The Defendant managed to avoid a custodial sentence because of the result in this case receiving only a community penalty for other offence to which he had pleaded earlier after mitigation was submitted by Mr Power QC.
