R v L

Published on 01/03/2019

Successfully defended in a 3 day re-trial for burglary. The defendant was a three-strike burglar. The case revolved around the defendant’s antecedent history and DNA belonging to him found at the scene. That DNA was recovered from what was described as a glove mark. The trial came down to the expert evidence provided in relation to the DNA. Despite the previous convictions for burglary going before the jury, Aleks was able to explain the concept of transference and the importance of the quantity of DNA recovered, in an easily digestible format for the Jury.
