It is uncommon that a criminal lawyer has a client who truly appears to be innocent. In this case it became clear early on that David Anber’s client was not guilty of the charge of which she was accused.
She had been an office manager in an medical clinic when she was asked by the owner to fire an employee. When she told the employee that she had been terminated, the employee became angry and agitated and started shouting and swearing at Mr. Anber’s client.
She then falsely accused the client of grabbing her arm.
After extensive negotiations agreement could not be reached and so the matter proceeded to trial. The trial judge found that she was left in a reasonable doubt as to the guilt of the accused and, accordingly, acquitted her of the charge before the Court.
