Here is a brief statement from CCRC about the decision of the Court of Appeal today to quash Stephen Simmons’ conviction.
We are pleased for Mr Simmons and pleased to have been able to help him.
Criminal cases tend to be very fact specific and it is often difficult to draw conclusions about one case on the basis of the outcome in another. We will look carefully at the Court of Appeal’s judgment and consider what implications it may have for others.
