Notable cases that Lewis has been involved in:
Police v P
P was accused of historical sexual assault on a family member. Lewis ensured the police carried out further enquiries that would assist P, including a request that the police to obtain a particular witness statement. Police ultimately decided to take no further action.
Police v M
M had never previously been arrested and wanted to avoid such a distressing experience. Representations made to avoid ‘ unnecessary’ arrest resulting in M attending for interview as a voluntary attender. This meant the matter would not be detected on a Disclosure and Baring Service check (CRB) that would have adverse consequences for the client’s future employment.
Police v D
D was accused of mistreatment towards a vulnerable person. The client was provided with comprehensive advice and put forward a full account in interview. After representations to the police no further action was taken.
Police v C
C was arrested for assault. The evidence against C was compelling. C accepted responsibility for the offence but was keen to avoid going to court. Representations were made to the police and C received a simple caution that effectively brought the matter to a close at the police station. C avoided a court conviction that would have had serious repercussions.
