Daniel Prowse secures acquittal for client facing armed robbery charges

November 18, 2016

After a four week trial at Preston Crown Court, Daniel Prowse from Exchange Chambers has secured  an acquittal for his client on charges of conspiracy to commit armed robbery and assisting an offender.  The charges related to the robbery of a cash-in-transit van in Preston in June 2015.

Daniel Prowse made a successful “half time” submission during the trial which resulted in the Judge throwing out the conspiracy to commit armed robbery count.  The jury later found the defendant, a 24 year old of previous good character, not guilty of assisting an offender.

Daniel Prowse was instructed by Forbes Solicitors.

Daniel’s practice encompasses all aspects of serious crime and he is regularly instructed in cases of serious violence, sexual offences, firearms, drugs and fraud. He has particular experience and expertise in multi-handed, document heavy cases such as large-scale drug supply, conspiracy to commit violence and other offences (often involving firearms) and all types of fraud. Daniel has been briefed in some of the most serious and complex cases in the North West, often deploying carefully crafted legal arguments as well as using IT and presentation aids to great effect.

He is a member of the criminal team at Exchange Chambers.
