Who? Jenny Wiltshire, 39, managing partner and criminal law solicitor at London firm Hickman & Rose.
Why is she in the news? Acted for a mother who, along with her partner, was last week acquitted of murdering their four-month-old son when a judge ruled that he had died from rickets arising from vitamin D deficiency. After his death in 2009 Chana al-Alas’s son was found to have a fractured skull. A post mortem revealed that he had been suffering from rickets, which weakens the bones and makes them liable to fracture.
