John Benson QC and Jemma Levinson Secure Acquittals in Old Bailey Murder Trial

Our Head of Chambers, John Benson QC, and Jemma Levinson secured acquittals for a Defendant on a charge of murder and four charges of attempted murder following a marathon twelve week trial at the Central Criminal Court.

John Benson QC stated: "This was a very challenging case. The Defence maintained that many of the important eye-witnesses on whom the Crown relied had colluded to incriminate the defendant. To advance this in cross-examination it was necessary to examine and analyse the phone records of these witnesses and the mass of disclosed bad character evidence. I was immensely fortunate to have in Jemma a junior of such calibre and ability to work with me on this case."
