A young boy has been acquitted of Murder and Manslaughter by a Jury after a 36-day trial at the Old Bailey.
Represented by Sarah Forshaw QC and Yasin Patel, the teenager was accused of murdering a 15-year old. The tragic event occurred in North Woolwich in December 2020. CCTV of the incident, showed the incident and all that had occurred in a busy public area in front of eye-witnesses and many passers-by. Although the young boy accepted that he had caused the fatal blow to the deceased, a stab wound to the chest, he had always maintained that he had acted in self-defence.
The investigation in this case involved 8000 hours of CCTV, 1000’s of telephone calls and messages and 100’s of witness statements and was made all the more challenging due to the young age of the defendant: 17-years old at the time of the incident.
Yasin Patel was instructed by Max Anwar of McCormacks Solicitors.
