Colin Aylott KC and Joe Hingston secure murder & manslaughter acquittal at the Central Criminal Court

10/02/2022

Colin Aylott KC and Joe Hingston represented one of four defendants charged with the shotgun murder of a drug dealer in a residential London street. 

Described by the prosecution as a killing perpetrated by those at “the top end of organised crime,” the point-blank fatal shooting was alleged to have been committed against the background of large-scale cocaine dealing. The defendant was acquitted of both murder and manslaughter.  

Colin & Joe were instructed by Javed Chughtai at EBR Attridge.
