R v JT – Southwark Crown Court


Hannah successfully represented a client at trial for possession of a bladed article. The police had searched the client at a protest and found a Stanley knife on him. The defence was one of reasonable excuse – that he had a good reason to have the knife on him, and thereafter had forgotten it was on his person. The jury unanimously acquitted within hours.

Hannah was instructed by Zachary Whyte of Montague Solicitors.
