Rupert Quaintance attended Hendon Magistrates Court this morning, representing himself as he has been unable to find a suitable solicitor to date. The Crown prosecutor noted that the “thousands of files and videos” related to this case had crashed the CPS computers, and thus she requires another month to prepare for what appears to be a very complex case.
The magistrates granted this request, and Rupert’s case has now been put forward to 28 February, 2017.
Belinda McKenzie was seen at the court, but did not appear to be taking an advisory role in Rupert’s case.
We will bring further updates as they occur.
