Clare Galo, Solicitor and Team Leader at our Milton Keynes Office, successfully defends a client at Milton Keynes Magistrates Court on Monday, 16th November.

Our client was charged with possession of a bladed article; Clare argued that our client had a reasonable excuse for having a kitchen knife in their car drivers’ door pocket as they had been cutting a cable tie under their steering. Our client became distracted and placed the knife in the door pocket where they forgot about it until just over a week later when the police searched the car in relation to an unrelated matter. The District Judge agreed with Clare’s submissions and acquitted our client who was delighted.
