Success for Stephen Bailey in serious county lines case. The defendant stabbed two drug addicts in the stomach. The stabbing and injury of one of the two was described by the crown as a “gutting”.
The crown presented the case as a revenge attack, as a result of the two complainants robbing the defendant’s drugs runner of the defendant’s Class A drugs.
The case originally indicted as an attempt murder, was disposed of after a Hung – Jury [an excellent result in itself] when the crown, accepted pleas of guilty to two counts of section 20 unlawful wounding.
Stephen’s instructing solicitor (a senior partner in the firm) witnessed Stephen’s cross examination of the two complainants’ and a defendant who had turned Queen’s Evidence. He described Stephen’s cross examination as “forensically brilliant” and the outcome and sentence as “simply fantastic.”
But for this outcome, the defendant would have been sentenced under the dangerous provisions of the 2003 Act and received a sentence in excess of 15 years imprisonment with an extended license.
