Steven Crossley in successful defence of Police Sergeant
March 10, 2017
Steven Crossley has been successful in the defence of a Police Sergeant of Lincolnshire Police.
Sergeant M, of Lincolnshire Police, was charged with the Common Assault of a detained person. The principal evidence came from a Police Constable who alleged that following a verbal complaint of assault by a detained person, the Sergeant had said the words “No, this is an assault” and then punched the detainee in the face. Following a 3 day trial at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court, the Magistrates acquitted Sergeant M and observed they could not be satisfied that the Police Constable had seen and heard what she alleged.
Steven is recognised as a Leading Individual in Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners and is a leading member of Chambers’ police law and disciplinary team.
