Top murder and serious crime defence solicitor law firm win murder charge acquittal for habitual knife carrier
Anon vs. Regina
The defendant was accused of murdering a young man outside a nightclub in Kingston. The defendant, who accepted being a habitual knife carrier, got caught up in an argument outside a nightclub in Kingston town centre. The defendant admitted using his knife to injure one man and causing a fatal injury to another. The incident was captured on CCTV and several eyewitnesses recorded it on their mobile phones. The careful presentation of the defence case in the context of that evidence was crucial. Mr Scobie QC was able to unpick damaging evidence from a number of prosecution witnesses and present a compelling defence narrative. Despite admitting that he caused both injuries, the jury acquitted the defendant of murder and s18 wounding.
Vanessa Wiggins of Bark&co Solicitors instructed James Scobie QC and Sam Robinson, both members of Garden Court Chambers.
