Jabeen Akhtar secures acquittal for defendant charged with S18 grievous bodily harm in catastrophic head injuries case

  • News

Jabeen Akhtar was instructed to attend Wolverhampton Crown Court to represent the Defendant at very short notice, after previous Counsel and Solicitors were obliged to withdraw from the case. It was alleged that her client participated in an attack which left a man with catastrophic and life-changing head injuries. After mastering the case as quickly as possible, she made a successful application to vacate her client’s previous guilty plea, and the trial commenced. Following her cross-examination of the principal witnesses in the case, the prosecution decided to offer no further evidence against her client, and the Judge directed the Jury to return a not guilty verdict.
