Excellent result for client at Lewes Crown Court where client avoided a custodial sentence despite pleading guilty to making a significant number of Category A videos. Sentencing guidelines suggest a starting pint of 12 months custody.
This was due in no small part to excellent plea mitigation put forward by Serena Gates of counsel. Client obviously delighted with the result and said as follows in his testimonial (also on Google):
‘Recently I found myself in need a specialist sexual offences solicitor. I found Joe Happe from McMillians Solicitor to be expert in this field. He gave clear and concise legal advise. He understood my objectives from day one and became an advocate for those objectives. He provided other experts in their field to aid in my dealings with the Police and the Courts. I believe that without these experts, I would have been served a custodial sentence. Joe told me the fees for each stage from day one. These fees didn’t change even though my case took almost 12 months to resolve.’
