Karlia Lykourgou represented the grandson of the 6th Baronet Adair at his sentence at Blackfriars Crown Court. Acting as a litigant in person, the defendant was found guilty of causing over £21,000 worth of damage to his million pound family home during acrimonious divorce proceedings.
Despite concerns regarding his mental health, an 18 month custodial sentence was imposed. This followed a finding that case law for criminal damage of comparative value was inapplicable due to the aggravating features of the offence and the defendant's conduct during trial.
Karlia was instructed by Tim Davies at Tuckers Solicitors
