Our firm successfully defended a client charged with kidnapping. The strategy for the defence centered on the reliability of the prosecution witnesses testimony, as a review of the evidence showed that their were inconsistencies with the statements given and the prosecutions arguments. Additionally, the personal relationship between the complainant and the parties may have been the influence the motives behind the complaint.
The court agreed with the defence submitted, and reasoned that the witness statements created doubt and were unrealistic.
Surprisingly, the prosecution did not appeal the judgment. It is common for the prosecution to appeal acquittal judgments.
