Craig joined Noble Solicitors in March 2017 with 7 years’ litigation experience, and over 5 years’ experience in assisting clients at the Police Station.
The majority of his criminal practice involves handling files within the Crown Court and dealing with a large range of criminal matters which include, but are not limited to; serious assaults ranging from attempted murder to ABH, serious sexual offences – both historic and recent, drug conspiracies, people trafficking, road traffic offences involving fatalities, and more.
Craig has been the file manager in the following cases as the litigator with conduct of the case;
R v RS – (Central Criminal Court and Woolwich CC): Charged with international trafficking and serious sexual offences. After lengthy preparation the client pleaded guilty and was sentenced to two years imprisonment which was deemed served whilst on remand.
R v MH – (Northampton CC): Charged with GBH with intent upon a Police officer whereby the Police officer had been stabbed. After representations to the Crown Prosecution Service the charge was lessened to GBH without intent and the client pleaded guilty to this. After numerous psychiatric assessments a hospital order was ordered.
R v SK – (Northampton CC): Charged with death by dangerous driving after allegedly colliding with a pedestrian who was crossing the road. After two years of preparation the client was acquitted at trial after Craig’s instructed collision investigator determined that the likely cause of the incident was the pedestrian falling back into the road as the client’s car was passing, which gave the client no time to take evasive action.
R v CG – (Luton CC): Charged with numerous offences of rape and sexual activity with a child under the age of 16. Thorough preparation of this case including site visits, taking of witness statements, and photography of genitalia led to the client being acquitted after trial.
