Patrick Cassidy Represents Supervising Probation Officer in High Profile Inquest

by Kenworthy's Chambers 17/06/2019

The two-week Article 2 inquest with jury into the death of Nurse, Lisa Skidmore took place in Black Country Coroner's Court; after Lisa Skidmore was brutally murdered in her home by Leroy Campbell, a convicted sex offender who had been released on license from a very lengthy period of imprisonment. The family of the deceased claimed the Police and the Probation Service missed opportunities for recall.

Patrick Cassidy, instructed by Thompsons Solicitors Manchester, represented a Senior Probation Officer as an interested person; "witness after witness from the police service and probation spoke of the adverse effect of the shortage of staff upon managing offenders in the community".
