"Bish - Bash - Bosh" Part 5 The Conclusion

Breckon NOT guilty of assault





Jersey Senator Alan Breckon has been found not guilty of the grave and criminal assault of his female friend and former colleague.

As the verdict was read out, the Senator nodded his head at the judge and shook hands with his legal team.

He looked visibly relieved breathing out a long breath.

Suzette Hase, 44 accused Senator Breckon of kicking her four times in the head at his home in St Brelade in April.

She said he attacked her after he tried to kiss her.

Mr Breckon always denied the charge and has been found not guilty.

    1. At least the verdict was arrived at with a jury, this is the way all court cases should be decided, and not by the arbitrary opinions of an ex banker or doctor (Ju-Rats) led by an unscroupulous judge. That is the real victory today.

      As for the merits of this case coupled with the blame game, I think the "six of one" has been equally as bad as the "half a dozen of the other"....

    2. +1 the trouble with the jurat system is that it's not apparent as to who made the decisions of fact and whether there was any doubt or question. In english courts, the judges usually say why they prefer one person's testimony against another's.

  2. I think the bigger problem is that guilty or not, people do not trust the courts or outcome of cases in Jersey. They are not persuaded by the verdict in too many cases. Justice "not seen to be done" comes to mind.

    1. Martin, they ask for a majority of 11-1 or 10-2 at trial....If the result is 9-3? they walk!!!

      That's what I was saying about rigging juries, all they need do is throw three ringers on there and, Hey Presto!

  5. In his evidence he said he was too drunk to remember something, but he somehow managed to clearly remember not hitting her!
    And I'm left wondering just how mad someone would have to be, to take it to court if it was all made up :)
    Still, she doesn't sound like the most reliable witness going by what has been reported, so I'll go with what the jury decided and that's that. Show's over folks.
