Old Bailey

Alan Kent KC and Joe Hingston’s client found not guilty of murder at the Old Bailey


Following a six-week trial at the Central Criminal Court, the jury found Alan and Joe’s client, the first defendant, not guilty of murder/manslaughter. The Crown’s case was that the defendant delivered the fatal blow in a four-handed attack in broad daylight on a residential London street, armed with machetes and knives.

All defendants argued they had acted in self defence. The entirety of the incident was captured on CCTV, but there were complex legal issues pursued by the defence in relation to gang affiliation and bad character.

Alan and Joe were instructed by Karamjit Singh at Bark & Co Solicitors.
