Harriet Johnson achieves unanimous acquittal in GBH trial

19.02.15 | |

Harriet Johnson has successfully defended a 21-year-old man charged with causing grievous bodily harm.  Charges were brought after the defendant's former girlfriend suffered a life-endangering knife wound to her wrist during an altercation with the defendant.  Harriet argued that the jury could not be sure that the injury was not caused accidentally.  


The jury at Oxford Crown Court took just over two hours to unanimously find the defendant not guilty.  Harriet was instructed by Alice Dodd of Macnab Clarke.
