After an exhaustive 8-week trial at the Old Bailey, their client, who was 17 years old at the time of the alleged offence, was acquitted of Murder.
The case involved grave accusations against their client, as it was alleged that he had conspired with others to travel to East London with the intent to commit a fatal stabbing on another 17-year-old.
The turning point in the trial came through a well-founded application to exclude highly prejudicial evidence due to its late service. This pivotal move played a significant role in securing the favourable verdict for their client.
