Our client was found not guilty of murder, possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life and criminal damage following a 6-week trial at Sheffield Crown Court.
Following a drive-by shooting in Doncaster in January 2021, a police investigation named Operation Sweep Mike commenced. This was a complex investigation involving CCTV, call data, and cell site evidence, resulting in the arrest of our client.
It was established that our client was travelling in the car with the shooter. However, he denied participation in the crime or intention to participate in the crime. In support of our client’s case, we instructed a telecommunications expert to examine the telephone evidence served upon us. This was helpful in proving his innocence.
Our client was the only defendant to be found not guilty of all charges by the jury. Four others were found guilty of either murder or manslaughter.
