‘Dishonesty’ includes a wide number of offences. It can range from a simple offence of burglary to a street or commercial robbery. Rustem Guardian have experience in dealing with the full range of offences.

Where an individual is charged with a dishonesty offence, it is important to challenge the underlying evidence. Often, fingerprint and DNA evidence are simply accepted rather than being challenged. Rustem Guardian are very familiar with the instruction of experts and the proper approach that should be taken when challenging a Streamlined Forensic Report (SFR) when relied upon by the prosecution.

Rustem Guardian have particular experience in seeking to exclude identity evidence where it’s obtained by the police. This includes where they have failed to follow their own codes of practice or where there has been an identification from social media.

There are various approaches that can be taken to dishonesty offences but ensuring that a client properly understands the legal process and is familiar with their case, and the strength of the evidence against them, is essential.

Where an individual is charged with a dishonesty offence, the outcome of their case is often closely linked to how they give evidence and whether they are liked and believed by a jury. Rustem Guardian are experienced in properly preparing clients for trial and ensuring that there is no evidence that has not been considered, so that clients are fully aware of the evidence against them. This is done through explanation but also by building trust through regular conferences with a member of the team.
