Allan Compton secured a suspended sentence in R v RC at Manchester Crown Court on 20th February 2015.
RC had pleaded guilty to an offence contrary to s58 Terrorism Act 200), having been found in possession of a number of documents including bomb making instructions, articles concerning detonators and explosive devices, and instructions detailing how to post covertly on the Internet. Material demonstrating an interest in anarchist and direct action organisations was also seized from the defendant.
Following submissions HHJ Stockdale QC agreed that RC was not, nor had he ever been, a terrorist and had now sufficiently rehabilitated himself to justify the imposition of a suspended sentence.
Mr Compton was instructed by Zita Spencer of Ollie’s Solicitors.
