Anthony Eskander wins back to back appeals in the Crown Court.

The first appeal concerned an allegation of harassment. Anthony’s cross-examination of the complainant was so damaging that he was able to successfully argue for the appeal to be dismissed at the close of the prosecution’s case.

In the second appeal, the complainant had recently been diagnosed with dementia and was no longer able to attend court. The Crown applied for her statement to be adduced as hearsay. Due to Anthony’s successful written and oral arguments, the judge ruled in favour of the defence. The Crown subsequently offered no evidence.
