Perverting the Course of Justice
This covers a wide range of acts that interfere with the smooth functioning of the justice system. Therefore, the offences include intimidating a witness, intimidating a juror, disposing of evidence, telling untruths on the witness stand and making false accusations.
All of these offences are treated as very serious acts by the courts because the courts require order and truthfulness to carry out their function.
Therefore, the penalty for committing these offences is often a prison sentence, which means getting proper and experienced legal representation is essential to ensure that you get a fair result.
ASBO (Anti Social Behaviour Order) Breaches
Breaching an ASBO can result in you being tried at a Magistrates’ or Crown Court depending on the seriousness, and the outcome of this may be a prison sentence.
Proper legal advice and representation may help you avoid a custodial sentence by:
- Verifying that the ASBO was actually breached
- Examining and challenging the evidence via a defence
- Minimising the severity of the sentence by providing relevant mitigation for the breach
- Advising on the options you have if you wish to appeal a decision
