Criminal Defence Lawyer Kerry Woollason, represented a client who was facing an immediate custodial sentence as he had breached his Community Order by refusing to co-operate with the Probation Service which was supervising the Order. This was a serious breach where the Probation Service was asking the Court to revoke the Community Order as the client was refusing to work with them, and re-sentence him to an immediate custodial sentence.

In the circumstances Kerry Woollason successfully argued that the purpose of the Community Order had been to monitor the client to prevent future offending. As he had not committed any further offences since the order was imposed several months ago, the Community Order was no longer necessary. The Court accepted this argument, and revoked the Community Order and re-sentenced him to a small fine rather than an immediate custodial sentence.
