Tom Little KC appears in significant Court of Appeal case on sentencing protestors

News | Wed 2nd Aug, 2023

On 31st July 2023 Lady Justice Carr (soon to become the next Lord Chief Justice) gave judgment in a case in which lengthy prison sentences were upheld for those undertaking a Just Stop Oil protest on the QEII Bridge on the M25. The sentence imposed (and upheld) was far longer than other comparable sentence in recent times. The Court of Appeal accepted Tom’s submissions on the core issues. The judgment will represent an important case in all cases of public nuisance contrary to section 78 of the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Act 2022 as well as other offences committed during the course of a protest.
