George Hepburne Scott – Success in the Court of Appeal on 27th June 2017

On 27th June 2017, George appeared before Full Court of Appeal – constituted by Flaux LJ,  Royce J, and Cheema-Grubb J and succeeded in persuading the Court that his client,  Andrew Ward’s sentence was ‘manifestly excessive‘.

The sentence was then reduced from 4 years to 3 years. George had argued for a further reduction when the Court told him what it had in mind but no further reduction was granted.

No further details are released due to Reporting Restrictions that are in place; this was a highly sensitive case.

Any queries can be directed to the Senior Clerk, Daniel Bartlett or Rod McGurk Practice Director
