Quentin appeared at Isleworth Crown Court on behalf of SP, a University student accused of perpetuating a large scale eBay Fraud involving the cloning of credit cards and the misuse of Transport For London Oyster Cards. Following the close of the prosecution case Quentin argued that the case on the first and most serious count on the indictment should be withdrawn from the jury. The judge agreed and the count was withdrawn from the jury and a Not Guilty verdict was entered on her behalf. Although technically guilty of Count 2 on the indictment Quentin successfully argued that his client should receive a Conditional Discharge when the sentencing guidelines suggested that a 3 year custodial sentence should have been the starting point.
