R v Samuel Brooks

January 25, 2024

On Monday of this week at Liverpool Crown Court, following a five-day trial, Richard Orme of St John’s Buildings, Manchester, instructed by Amy Butler of Butler & Co, Liverpool, secured the acquittal of a defendant charged with Rape and Non-Fatal Strangulation. The defence was able to demonstrate to the jury, who acquitted in 40 minutes, that the complaint was an entirely false allegation generated out of revenge, thereby saving an innocent man the ordeal of many years in prison.
