Criminal QC found guilty of professional misconduct

Howard Godfrey QC was found guilty of professional misconduct for the manner in which he portrayed a 16-year-old victim of sexual assault. The complaint was that Mr. Godfrey had implied the assault was the victim’s fault.

A Tribunal found him guilty in May 2017, during which Suzanne McKie QC conducted his cross-examination (an excerpt of which is at paragraph 42 of the High Court’s judgment). Today, the High Court upheld that finding. The High Court’s judgment is available here.
