Liam Walker secures acquittal in complex fraud case

17.09.15 | |

Following legal submissions over two days by Liam Walker, a jury at Chichester Crown Court were directed to return a verdict of not guilty against ‘CD’.


‘CD’ had been charged with aiding and abetting an employee of West Sussex County Council to defraud the council of hundreds of thousands of pounds of public funds.


It had been alleged that ‘CD’ assisted by setting up bank accounts, transferring money abroad and administering shell companies to keep up the fraud.


Following submissions by Liam Walker, evidence which was crucial to the Crown’s case was excluded. Liam subsequently successfully submitted that all charges should be withdrawn from the jury.


The case involved thousands of pages of evidence including expert analysis of funds transfers and email exchanges between the alleged fraudsters.


‘CD’ was represented by Liam Walker from the outset of proceedings. Liam was instructed by Paul Dillon of Lawtons Solicitors.
