Following a 2 week trial at Winchester Crown Court, Barry’s client was unanimously acquitted of charges of attempted kidnapping and s18 gbh. Barry’s client was said to be the ‘honey in the trap’ that led to the complainant being the subject of a serious and prolonged attack involving the use of a taser and a knife. The Defendant always accepted presence but denied any involvement. The case involved extensive cell-site, forensic, DNA evidence and phone evidence.
Barry was instructed by Chris Gaiger of Gammon, Piercey & Gaiger Solicitors, Southampton.
