3PB criminal and PI barrister Oliver HirschOliver HirschCall: 2020 recently appeared in the Court of Appeal, in a challenge to his client's sentence for breach of a restraining order.

The appeal succeeded, with the sentence being reduced by nearly one third, from 58 months to 40.

The Court commended Oliver for his 'very helpful' submissions, which contended that the sentence passed had insufficient regard to totality and was manifestly excessive. The Court ruled that the sentences for each of the 3 breaches should have been concurrent, not consecutive, per the grounds of appeal.

Oliver was instructed by Michael McGoldrick and Nicholas Muir of Roach Pittis solicitors.
