Gray & Co Provide Defence in Case Against Soldiers

 

Gray & Co solicitors provide legal support for two soldiers in a case of mistaken identity. 

 

The two soldiers attacked a man after a night of drinking. They had mistaken the man for a person they encountered following an earlier incident that same evening.

 

Adam Antoszkiw, defending, argued that his clients are men of good character and that they expressed remorse over the isolated incident. As the verdict passed, the judge agreed that the men had indeed expressed remorse and had subsequently pleaded guilty. 

 

Their superior, Captain Grimes, who was present in court, had provided good references for both soldiers. It was also taken into account that both men were set to lay their lives on the line for their country later this year. 

 

Instead of a prison sentence, each defendant is set to carry out 150 hours’ unpaid work, pay £3,350 compensation plus an £85 victim surcharge in addition to facing internal Army disciplinary proceedings.
