Northampton MC – R v CB

The client was charged with failing to provide a breath specimen and assault on police constable. The issues in the case were the client’s mental fitness and failure by the police to arrange an appropriate adult due to the client’s vulnerable state as required by case law. At the second hearing which was listed for trial, Laura Heywood (Gold level lawyer) instructed by Sandra Cooper (reviewing lawyer) persuaded the Judge to dismiss the charges as the police had not considered the need for an appropriate adult in the custody record and the failure to serve video footage meant there could not be a fair trial as the defence expert could not produce a report without this material.
