Katrina Walcott secures unanimous acquittal 

Katrina Walcott’s client faced trial at Inner London for one count of sexual assault. 

It was alleged that AE groped the complainant as they exited a busy lift at London Bridge station. The Crown’s case relied on CCTV footage and the live evidence of the complainant. AE’s defence was that he did not intentionally touch the complainant. 

Through cross-examination, the defence were able to adduce from the complainant the possibility that the touching was accidental. It was also conceded by the complainant that the touching did not, “by her definition”, amount to a sexual assault. The case also involved a Section 78 application to exclude unfair evidence. 

AE was unanimously acquitted after just under 2 hours of deliberation. 

Katrina Walcott was instructed by Bilal Tanveer of Morgan Has Solicitors
