The Jade Jagger assault case took a twist today as it emerged a lawyer is seeking a retrial and tougher sentence for the jewellery designer.
The 51-year-old mum was fined £1,200 and ordered to pay £700 compensation to a woman police officer she hurt during a scuffle in Ibiza last Wednesday.
A police lawyer told Mail Online last night he will demand the conviction is declared invalid because Friday’s fast-track trial should ‘never have taken place.’
Eduardo Luna, hired by Spanish police union SUP to fight the case, insisted: ‘An annulment would mean the conviction no longer stands and we go back to where we were before the trial and then I intend pushing for a more serious charge against Jade Jagger with a tougher punishment.
‘When you’re resisting arrest and a police officer is injured, that’s an assault. And assaulting a police officer in Spain can be punished with prison.’

He added: ‘What’s happened here has been very irregular. This should never have gone to a fast-track trial because the police officer’s injury was not consolidated which means we don’t know how it’s going to evolve.’
The Palma-based lawyer, who has represented SUP in criminal law cases for more than three years, explained: ‘The judge who sentenced Jade Jagger will have to justify why she allowed a fast-track trial to take place if she refuses my annulment demand and that’s going to be difficult in my opinion.
‘If that happens I will appeal and ask a higher court to decide.’
Jagger’s toyboy boyfriend Anthony Hinkson, 31, was handed a four-month suspended prison sentence at the behind-closed-doors hearing in Ibiza Town after admitting to a crime of assaulting a police officer over the street scuffle last week outside trendy eatery La Oliva.
Musician Sir Mick Jagger’s daughter also struck a deal with state prosecutors and put her hands up to crimes of resisting arrest and wounding.
Jagger and her new lover spent two nights in a police cell in Ibiza before appearing in court.

Jade Jagger and her boyfriend are believed to have arrived at a court in Ibiza in a police van (pictured). A Spanish police Union said they will launch private legal action against the couple
They were arrested on Wednesday night after a manager at trendy Ibiza Town restaurant La Oliva called police and refused to serve Barbadian Hinkson because he was insulting staff and other customers.
He is said to have turned on officers who confronted him after he behaved aggressively towards other people on the street outside the eatery.
Video footage obtained exclusively by Mail Online showed him being pinned to the ground by police who then called for an ambulance.
Witnesses said he had been behaving erratically and had gone into a clothes shop opposite La Oliva where he bought an expensive dress he then gifted to a waitress at the restaurant before the subsequent street altercation.
Jagger, who split from her DJ husband-of-nine-years in 2021, is said to have intervened as her boyfriend was being arrested with witnesses claiming she accused officers of targeting him because he was black.
Well-placed sources said she insulted and pushed police, with the woman she hurt suffering a wrist injury which led to having to take time off work.
Other Spanish reports said she had scratched a police officer.
It did not become clear until after the hastily-organised fast-track trial, thought to have taken place after several hours of negotiations between defence and state prosecution lawyers, that Jagger and her boyfriend had admitted their guilt and been convicted.
MailOnline was told that the bust-up happened after Jade and her boyfriend went to the La Oliva restaurant (pictured) in the heart of the old town area near Ibiza Castle

Jade Jagger (pictured in Ibiza) was convicted of resisting arrest and a minor offence of wounding a woman police officer following a row at the La Oliva restaurant in Ibiza’s Old Town on Wednesday night
An official at the Balearic Islands’ High Court, acting as a spokesperson for sentencing judge Maria Luisa Bastillo, confirmed moments after mum-of-three Jade left court and got into a van with blacked-out windows without making any comment: ‘Court of Instruction Number One in Ibiza, acting as a duty court, has held a speedy trial following a plea bargain deal against A.W and J.J who were arrested on Wednesday in Ibiza.
‘The judge has convicted A.W of a crime of assaulting a police officer and handed him a four-month prison sentence.
‘The same judge has fined JJ for a crime of serious resistance and a minor offence of wounding.
‘The fine for the first offence is 10 euros (£8.68) daily over four months and for the second it is a 20-day fine at 10 euros (£8.68) a day.
‘JJ must also compensate her victim with 800 euros (£695).’
Hinkson’s prison sentence is understood to have been suspended as part of the plea bargain deal, with prison terms of two years or less routinely being suspended for first-time offenders in Spain.
A well-placed source said last night: ‘This twist in the case opens up all sorts of possibilities.
‘One is that Jade and her boyfriend will have their convictions annulled, be summoned back to court, and leave themselves open to international arrest warrants if they have left Spain by the time they get their summons and refuse to play ball.’
SUP, which represents more than 20,000 Spanish National Police officers, had already announced plans to prosecute the pair in a legal action due to run as a parallel but separate case to the state prosecution one.
Lawyer Mr Luna said: ‘What should have happened on Friday is that the injured police officer should have been asked in court to confirm what she had written in her report about the incident before being summoned again at a future date.
‘The fast-track trial occurred after she left court having left the matter in the hands of her lawyer and told officials to instruct him about any developments.
‘The way things occurred has all been very strange. I am confident I can obtain an annulment.’
