We represented three clients who were involved in a fight outside a bar on Chapel Street. The entire incident was captured on CCTV, our clients were charged with affray, assault and other offences.
On careful study of the CCTV it was clear that our clients were mostly defending themselves and the fight had been started by the alleged victim and another party.
After negotiations with the prosecution all three of our clients were offered diversion. This meant that there was no finding of guilt and no criminal record.
Two of our clients were on student visas so a criminal record may have lead to them being deported.
