complained to SCCRC Scottish Criminal cases Review Commission that Mr
Taylor defectively represented me they failed to take account of his
When i complained to The Dean Of Faculty about the conduct of Mr Taylor he said this:
At number 8 he claims not to have known about the evidence of Donald Shaw (The solicitor that conducted my ID Parade)
Mr Taylor is right then my defence was not fully put to the jury and
the most crucial arguments about this evidence was never disputed in
Clearly this evidence was capable of casting doubt on the police evidence that i was the driver.
See The Evidence Of Shaw Here for yourself:
Shaws ID Parade Report
Shaws Statement to SCCRC
impression was the witness knew prior to coming into the parade exactly
what position i had adopted. This would have been why he wrote the
above on his ID Parade report.
It also beggars the
question...... Why didn't he know of this evidence if he had done his
job properly then he would and should have made sure he had a statement
from every witness.
This would be the actions of any competent QC doing his best to represent any accused
This witnesses evidence was crucial to my trial given i was convicted solely on Identification evidence, Why?
Because he wrote that the policeman that identified me had number two out his mouth before turning to view the parade.
Number two just happened to be an Off-Duty Poiceman, Nigel Muckle of Livingston.
