The defendant was charged with burglary, criminal damage, common assault, and a Malicious Communications Act offence after being arrested inside the home of his ex-partner. On the first day of trial at Snaresbrook Crown Court, Mark received disclosure of some information that completely undermined the Crown’s case, and tactically deployed that information to prosecution counsel.

The prosecution then reviewed the case, and were forced to offer no evidence on all counts, save for the criminal damage where the defendant pleaded guilty to that count at an earlier hearing. The defendant received a £180 fine deemed served, due to the number of days accrued on a qualifying curfew.
