LiverPool FC Defender, Lloyd Jones, Found 'Not Guilty', 15th November 2017

Lloyd Jones appeared before the Crown Court at Gloucester in relation to an allegation of causing grievous bodily harm. No evidence was offered and a verdict of not guilty was entered.

On the 31st August 2017, Lloyd Jones appeared before the Crown Court at Gloucester in relation to an allegation of unlawful wounding (GBH). Mr. Draycott had been instructed to act at a very early stage and had been involved in the provision of advice and assistance to Mr. Jones throughout the lengthy Police enquiry. A careful analysis of the evidence served in Mr. Jones’s case illustrated that he had been inappropriately charged with wounding.

Following negotiations with the prosecuting authority, no evidence was offered in Mr. Jones’s case and a formal verdict of not guilty was entered. Mr. Jones conceded that he had been involved in a public disturbance in the early hours of the 12th March 2017 and as a result he was made the subject of a Community Order. We were delighted to be able to assist Mr. Jones throughout his defence of this case. We worked tirelessly upon his behalf to ensure a favourable outcome and that is precisely what was achieved. All at Draycott Browne wish Mr. Jones well in relation to his future footballing career.
