Action Dropped in Police Baton Injury Case

June 29, 2011

The criminal solicitor, Sonn Macmillan Walker, obtained an acquittal for Robert Mortimer who was prosecuted for violent disorder following a large disturbance in August 2009 t a West Ham v Millwall fixture. In the course of the incident that followed the match it was not disputed that Mortimer was batoned to the head by a police officer. Pictures of Mortimer lying on the ground bleeding profusely were included in the nationwide coverage of the incident.

The criminal lawyer, David Sonn, said, ‘It took the police and CPS 18 months from the date on which my client was charged to acknowledge that the police footage of the incident contradicted the witness statements of four police officers. Our client should never have been prosecuted in the first place.’

Mr Mortimer funded his case privately and the Court ordered that his costs should be paid from central funds.
