Rob Griffiths Succeeds In The Court of Appeal

12 Jun 2018

Rob Griffiths today managed to persuade the Court of Appeal to reduce the sentence on a man who pleaded guilty to three fraud offences. Paul Whitehead (60) had received 33 months for attempting to defraud a bank but the sentence was reduced to 24 months after the Court agreed that insufficient credit had been given for his guilty plea and the Judge had misapplied the relevant sentencing guidelines.

Permission to appeal had already been refused by the Single Judge and Rob acted pro bono on the renewed application.
