3PB criminal barrister, Jodie MittellJodie MittellCall: 2004, (pictured here) was instructed to represent a man from the Isle of Wight who was accused of raping six women over a period of 10 years. The 26 year old man of previous good character had been due to stand trial at Portsmouth Crown Court and his trial had been scheduled to last for four weeks from 4th April 2022. As part of his defence, Miss Mittell made a number of written requests for disclosure of potentially significant phone and social media communications. Following a review of that material, the Crown Prosecution Service accepted last week that he should no longer be detained in custody; he was, therefore, released from prison on 30th March 2022. Having concluded their review, the prosecution then formally offered no evidence against the man and he was found Not Guilty on all counts at Portsmouth Crown Court on 4th April 2022.
