Criminal Defence Solicitor, Sonia Bhalla, recently represented a client at court for possession of a bladed article. It was in dangerous circumstances and police had attended after a report that a male had brandished a knife in a local car park with others present. When police attended they witnessed the client drop something and recovered a knife at the same spot. The client was arrested and eventually charged. At court the client was looking to receive a high level community order and was potentially facing a period in custody, especially as the courts in general are unforgiving when it comes to knife crime. After mitigation was given, the Magistrates sentenced the client to £315 fine including costs, which the client was delighted about.
