Chris Smith and Stephen Uttley at Leeds Crown Court


“Acquitted Across The Board”

Chris Smith and Stephen Uttley secured unanimous acquittals last week for clients facing allegations of involvement in serious organised vigilante violence; one incident involved the alleged use of multiple firearms.

Both defendants were accused of involvement in a sustained and violent attack involving the use of weapons including a sword; lengthy custodial sentences would have been inevitable upon conviction.

After a three-week trial the Jury swiftly returned unanimous verdicts of NOT GUILTY and both men walked free from court.

Stephen was instructed by SJ Law Solicitors – an experienced London firm whilst Chris was retained by the respected West Yorkshire firm – Qamars Solicitors.
