Mr Williams is accused of 16 counts of damaging property, being reckless as to whether life is endangered and two of assault causing actual bodily harm between January and August 2015. The trial is being heard at Maidstone Crown Court, with Alex Rooke appearing for the prosecution.
Over an eight-month period, Mr Glynn Williams damaged 16 vehicles and caused injury to two drivers by throwing rocks from his delivery van, in an area about 11 by 11 miles in the “high weald” area of Kent covering Cranbrook, Benenden, Biddenden, Rolvenden, Goudhurst and Sandhurst.
Mr Williams was employed to make deliveries for Dartford-based United Parcel Service in the area in a brown transit van.
“Our accusation against him is time and time again while doing his delivery driving in the TN17 and TN18 postcodes, he had the habit, for whatever reason, of throwing rocks at passing vehicles,” said prosecutor Alex Rooke.
“We are talking about 16 incidents. Two of those incidents, possibly three, led to injury. Only one was a static vehicle.”
Mr Williams, denies 16 charges of damaging property being reckless as to whether life is endangered and two of assault causing actual bodily harm between January and August 2015.
The trial against Mr Williams continues.
Alex Rooke maintains a busy 50/50 defence and prosecution practice, and believes this is the best way of learning and retaining the skills applicable to both sides of the courtroom. He has wide experience of cases involving serious violence, grave sexual offending, fraud and organised crime.
