Operation Calcitic – Woolwich Crown Court
We represented the sister of the main defendant who entered guilty pleas to engaging in conduct to commit acts of terrorism. His wife was also charged in encouraging him but was convicted by a jury. Our client entered guilty pleas on a basis to sending a terrorist publication, intending to either directly/ indirectly to encourage them to prepare an act of terrorism. This case required analysis of the WhatsApp chat, and web search history. The defence team prepared a significant mitigation bundle which resulted in a reduced sentence of 30 months imprisonment.
