Shaun Esprit Secures Acquittal in Sensitive Attempted Murder Trial

Shaun Esprit of Chambers Crime and Regulatory Team successfully secured the unanimous acquittal of a defendant who stood trial for attempted murder and wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

This was a complex and highly sensitive case. The defendant had returned to his family in the UK after working in military prison camps overseas. Having suffered PTSD and psychotic symptoms as a result of his traumatic experiences, he faced trial for stabbing his wife 13 times. Key to the successful defence was the effective cross-examination of the Crown’s internationally renowned consultant psychiatrist. 

Counsel was instructed by Mr Majid Mahmood of City Law Solicitors.
