R v S Southwark Crown Court

Claire’s client was the subject of a Private Prosecution by an individual which led to his committal for trial at the Crown Court. Mr S was an academic of good character ineligible for Public Funding and facing incredibly stressful litigation. The CPS were persuaded to use their statutory powers to intervene in the prosecution and undergo a full review of the prosecution case. This resulted in them taking over conduct of the case and immediately offering no evidence against Mr S.  In addition, Counsel instructed successfully argued for an order for this client’s full (substantial) costs to be paid.
