Plastic surgeon Southwell stabbing.


Recommended Posts

I do have scant background information on this fellow.  It’s worth googling ‘Jonathan Peter Brooks. Fitness to Practise’  

Or, (having just googled it myself,) more specifically ‘Mr J Brooks v NUH’

The trial of defendant Jonathan Peter Brooks is due to get underway at Nottingham Crown Court this week. Plastic surgeon Brooks, 56, of Landseer Road, Southwell, appeared in court this afternoon (Monday, July 11) before jury selection begins. 

Brooks, wearing a cream-coloured suit, pale pink tie and pale blue shirt, is representing himself at trial. However, Stephen Leslie QC, is a court-appointed advocate who will give Brooks assistance in the cross-examination of five witnesses.

I'm looking forward to this. Local lad and all that! As the old adage states 'A man who is his own lawyer has a fool for a client'. He's pleading not guilty on all charges. Let's see how he gets out of it!

I was wondering how this case was progressing.

 

He's taking a risk in defending himself. Every man to his trade, as they say...well, they did before equal opps  landed.

 

He'll probably get stitched up by the prosecution.

Reading the details of his previous appeal as referred to by @LizzieM last August he's a very bitter man. I think we're going to get some some dirt dug on the NHS surgeons who augment their meagre salaries with private work! Attempted murder, three counts of arson with intent to endanger the lives of three people and possession of a knife in a public place. If anyone needs a good lawyer he does!

As of August last year, he did have a barrister, Vanessa Marshall QC, representing him.  Wonder why he is now representing himself?  Surely he has the wherewithall to pay for counsel?  Was the initial advice (probably "you should reconsider your plea") not what he wanted to hear?

He probably believes that old saying.

 

What's the difference between God and a surgeon?

God doesn't think he's a surgeon
