Shona Grundy has secured the acquittal of a 15 year old defendant who had been charged with five other co-defendants of a s.18 stabbing. Prior to the prosecution case commencing, Shona challenged the identification evidence sought to be relied upon during the course of a four day voir dire hearing. The Judge ruled that the behaviour of the police had been borderline mali fide and exclude the case against Shona's client entirely under s.78 PACE.
Shona was instructed by Achom & Partners Solicitors
