We represented a client at the Central Criminal Court who was charged with Murder, manslaughter and possession of firearm with intent to endanger life.
It was alleged that our client was involved in an altercation whereby the victim had passed away after suffering a gunshot wound to the head.
Ms Anna Hogg, Trainee Solicitor of this firm worked tirelessly on this case while Mr Sasha Sidhu, Managing Director, oversaw proceedings.
Our client was represented in Court by Michael Holland QC and Andrew Frymann, both of Furnival Chambers. After a 4 week trial our client was unanimously acquitted after deliberations that lasted less than one day. This was despite there being CCTV evidence which clearly showed the victim being shot in the head and the client admitting to being responsible for the shooting albeit citing an accident as the explanation for what had occurred.
The outcome was in keeping with the established practices of the firm and our firearm related specialism.
