Sarah Whitehouse QC and Alistair Richardson in fake bomb detector trial

Sarah Whitehouse QC and Alistair Richardson appeared in the trial of Samuel and Joan Tree, who were charged with making articles for use in a fraud. Mr and Mrs Tree sold home-made detectors and, in the knowledge that they did not work, marketed them as being manufactured in a high security laboratory and as being capable of detecting, among other things, the presence of drugs and explosives. Mr Tree was sentenced to three and a half years and Mrs Tree received 300 hours of community work.
