April 3, 2024

Eddy Steele from Exchange Chambers, instructed by CPS RASSO Division, has secured guilty verdicts prosecuting two counts of sexual assault after a four-day trial at Bolton Crown Court.

The trial concerned two teenage girls who were sexually assaulted by an elder male colleague at their place of work, a gymnasium, in south Manchester.

Eddy regularly prosecutes and defends cases involving rape and serious sexual offences.  In terms of his prosecution work, he has successfully obtained convictions for serious sexual offences.

Eddy is a crime and regulatory specialist.  His year of call (2022) does not accurately reflect his time working in the legal industry (since 2009), where he used to work for one of the largest global business law firms as a nationally recognized regulatory solicitor.  Eddy was appointed a coroner in 2022 and sits at Hull Coroners Court.

He is currently instructed in a number of high-profile criminal and regulatory cases, inquest proceedings and professional disciplinary hearings.
