Sean Summerfield Secures the Acquittal of a Man Charged With GBH, Following a 6-day Trial at Southampton Crown Court

SR was charged along with 3 co-defendants, all accused of jointly attacking the complainant, leading to hospitalisation and a lengthy period of recovery.  The GBH count was thrown out at halftime, and a Not Guilty verdict returned on the alternative ABH.  SR ran ‘defence of another’ and was the only defendant to be acquitted of all charges following trial.

Sean was instructed by Arlene Mansour, partner at Shearman Bowen & Co.
