The appellant had initially been advised by his trial counsel that no grounds of appeal existed. David received the papers three years after the conviction and advised that there were six arguable grounds of appeal relating to the judge's summing up. The Single Judge agreed and yesterday the Court of Appeal, Leveson LJ presiding, quashed all the convictions and refused the prosecution's application for a retrial.

David is a member of the Garden Court Chambers Crime Team with a particular expertise in appeal work.
