FAMOUS APPEAL VICTORIES

Tony Martin

The notorious case of Tony Martin
Murder reduced to Manslaughter.

Tony Martin was the Norfolk farmer who lived in extraordinary conditions, a derelict farmhouse loaded with traps for burglars.

After being sentenced to Life imprisonment for murder, Michael was instructed for the appeal. The conviction was quashed and replaced by Manslaughter with a sentence of 5 years imprisonment. This celebrated success came after Michael argued the rights of self-defence for a homeowner.

Martin was released in July 2003 after serving three years of his five-year sentence, the maximum period for which he could be held, following good behaviour.

Munir Hussain

Property Home-owner Self-defence Appeal.
Immediate Release.

The case of Munir Hussain had obvious similarities to that of Tony Martin.

The Defendant was sent to prison after he fought back against intruders who entered his home and held himself and family hostage. The Defendant, having managed to escape, severely beat the criminal leaving him with serious injury. Michael, on the Appeal, sought an exceptional approach from the Lord Chief Justice, and achieved precisely that with the release of Munir ordered immediately.
