Wainwright & Cummins News

Mr Rod Jones of Wainwright & Cummins today represented Helen Jones at her sentencing hearing at Preston Crown Court. Ms Jones, an ex-police officer, was sentenced for misconduct in public office after using her then status as a police officer to obtain CCTV footage of footballer Steven Gerrard.

This has been a complex and difficult case, not least because it has received substantial media exposure due to the connection to Mr Gerrard.

Ms Jones was given a custodial sentence of 22 months. This is an uncertain area of sentencing in which there is little existing guidance, and we are closely examining the merits of a possible appeal.
