Joe Davis and Sarah Moulange acted for a client accused of arson, following a fire at the house in which her and her daughter were sleeping. The prosecution instructed a fire expert, who concluded that only our client could have set the fire from inside the locked house, indicating that it could only have been deliberate ignition.
Our client was at risk of losing her child and serving a lengthy prison sentence if found guilty of starting the fire, which caused thousands of pounds worth of damage. The evidence against her was strong, however together with Emma Reed of 33 Bedford Row, they managed to demonstrate that there were numerous potential causes of the fire, casting a very reasonable doubt on the likelihood that our client deliberately caused the fire.
Our client was vocal about her innocence from the outset and was eventually acquitted after a five day trial in the Crown Court.
