US Federal Air Marshal JGB acquitted by Old Bailey Jury
Yesterday afternoon, an Old Bailey jury returned a not-guilty verdict by an 11-1 majority in the case of JGB. This well publicised case attracted significant media attention both in the UK and the United States.
JGB was unavailable for any specific comment yesterday but through his lawyers at MPR Solicitors , he released the following statement:
“An Old Bailey jury has today found me Not Guilty of the allegation brought against me by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS). This acquittal has brought to an end a two year period of uncertainty in my personal and professional life. I now wish to return to my family in the US and to continue serving my country as a Federal Air Marshall. I bear no party any ill will. I would like to thank the jury for their careful consideration of the evidence and bringing me final closure through their Not Guilty verdict”.
The successful conclusion of this case brings to an end an extremely turbulent period in JGB’s life. Throughout the entirety of his case, he benefited from the expert support of the MPR specialist team. After an almost 2 year battle, JGB can now return to the United States where it is hoped that the US Department of Homeland Security will reinstate him as an Air Marshal.
