Violent Disorder Case - Swansea Crown Court Update

Published: 24th March 2023

Jon Anders – February / March 2023

The defendant was charged with a violent disorder during which three people were stabbed. The stabbings were serious, one of them being regarded as life threatening. Surprisingly no charges reflecting the stabbings were brought but the seriousness of the allegation of violent disorder was elevated as a result.

The case was largely based on CCTV evidence. The Prosecution was made aware by the Defence of a significant error in the purported identification of the defendant which was accepted. The defendant was acquitted following a trial lasting 4 weeks.

The solicitor in the case was Natalie Miller at Abbey Solicitors in Manchester.
