Law firm says advocate went through a 'nightmare'

Thu, 20 Feb 2014


The law firm representing a Manx advocate who had a conviction for money laundering overturned says her ordeal has been a ‘nightmare’.

Yesterday, the Privy Council quashed Jenny Holt’s conviction, and one of falsifying documents.

The advocate had faced a battle to clear her name after being given a 12-month suspended sentence in 2011.

A jury had ruled that she knew her clients – millionaire Trevor Baines and his wife Wendy – had used £400,000 of stolen money to pay their legal fees.

James Saunders of Saunders Law represented Miss Holt in court:
