Post Office Convictions Quashed – Craig Hassall KC, Helena Spector and Joseph Hudson Defend

Parliament has passed historic legislation quashing the convictions of former sub-postmasters who were the victims of what has been described as the greatest miscarriage of justice in British legal history.

Throughout the struggle to exonerate sub-postmasters, Craig Hassall KC, Helena Spector and Joseph Hudson have advised and represented a group of former sub-postmasters who were unjustly convicted, involving referrals to the Criminal Cases Review Commission and the successful appeal of one conviction through the court process.

Craig, Helena and Joseph were instructed by Lords Solicitors and Schofield Sweeney Solicitors.

Craig, Helena and Joseph are members of PSQB’s thriving regulatory team, with expertise in regulatory proceedings, inquiries, and criminal defence.
