Five members of a Newham gang who kidnapped and tortured a 16-year-old boy were sentenced to over 23 years’ imprisonment at Snaresbrook Crown Court.
Maria represented a 14 year old defendant who was unanimously acquitted of being in possession of three firearms after trial. He was convicted of conspiracy to blackmail together with four other defendants. He had previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy to kidnap and conspiracy to falsely imprison. He was sentenced to a total sentence of 27 months detention in a Young Offenders Institution.
The trial and sentence drew on Maria’s expert knowledge of dealing with children and young offenders in the criminal justice system. For example, the rules and procedures on reporting restrictions, special measures, ‘gang’ bad character, definition of ‘persistent young offender,’ eligibility for a detention and training order and youth rehabilitation order, effect of time served on a s.91 PCC(s)A 2000 grave crimes sentence, the difference between remand to the care of the local authority and remand to youth detention accommodation.
Maria was instructed by Harriet Benson of Henscott Solicitors in Walthamstow
