Cleared of Manslaughter

Francis FitzGibbon represented Adam King, who was acquitted on the Judge’s direction of the manslaughter by gross negligence of 16 year 0ld Megan Bannister. She died of a probable overdose of Ecstasy, supplied by the co-defendant. The medical evidence failed to show a prima facie case that the defendant’s failure to get help caused her death.
