Mountford Chambers sign by the front door

Following a 4-week trial at Maidstone Crown Court, Alan Kent KC’s client was found not guilty of murder.


The defendant had travelled to Dartford to collect a debt. He was armed with a small flick knife. During a confrontation, the defendant stabbed the deceased in his leg. He ran away but the deceased chased him into an alleyway. The deceased was armed with a ‘Zombie’ knife. During the fight, the deceased was stabbed in the heart.

The case required expert analysis of thousands of pages of telephone evidence and involved expert evidence relating to the interpretation of street / gang slang language.

Alan was instructed by Karamjit Singh from Holborn Law and led Lefi Siatta from Furnival Chambers.
