Not Guilty verdicts for Chris Henley QC’s client accused of shooting a 15 year old boy.


NM was charged with attempted murder, section 18, and firearms offences. The 15 year old victim was shot in the street in Birmingham, as he left his home.

NM was alleged to have recruited the gunman, driven to the scene with him, where he pointed out the victim. The gunman was found guilty, but NM and another were acquitted of all charges following a 3 week trial at Birmingham Crown Court. The trial featured cell site and facial mapping experts, and extensive CCTV evidence.

A successful hearsay application was made to rely on comments in interview made by a co-defendant who did not give evidence at the trial (s114(1)(d) CJA 2003).
