Not Guilty Verdict for Van Driver Charged with Manslaughter

A not guilty verdict has been returned for a van driver that was charged with manslaughter.

Oliver Brown was found not guilty of the manslaughter of Stephen Walsh on Wednesday afternoon by Nottingham Crown Court.

Prosecutors explained that after a minor car collision, Brown searched the area to find the other driver. After finding Walsh’s white Lexus in his driveway, Brown proceeded to attack Walsh at his home in Blenheim Avenue, Mapperley.

According to The Nottingham Post “Brown was said to have remonstrated with father-of-two Mr Walsh at the front door but then allegedly struck him hard, according to the prosecution, to his face, knocking him directly to the ground. Mr Walsh, who had been drinking earlier, sustained fractures to his head and his jaw and the injuries in due course, over a matter of hours, led to a bleed on the brain and his death.”

Brown maintained that Walsh had been aggressive and had been drinking and that he only acted in self-defence. He also stated that he was not in an angry state as he searched for Walsh. The incident happened in August 2018 and Brown has now been found not guilty.
