Thom Dyke successful in High Court appeal

News | Thu 26th Oct, 2023

AA was charged with multiple counts of rape and assault against the complainant.  He had previously been accused by two other complainants of similar sexual and violent offences and had gone on the run from police in 2021 for nearly four months.

Despite the significant danger posed by AA, he was granted bail by the Crown Court.  Thom Dyke represented the Crown Prosecution Service in bringing a successful appeal to the High Court against the decision.

In his judgment, Mr Justice Martin Spencer accepted Thom’s submissions as to the risk that AA would commit further offences and interfere with witnesses, were he to be granted bail. The decision of the Crown Court was quashed, and AA was remanded into custody to await his trial.

Thom Dyke was instructed by the Crown Prosecution Service.
