Kangs Solicitors recently defended a client facing the charge that he had conspired with others, over a number of months, to steal and handle stolen high performance motor vehicles, valued at hundreds of thousands of pounds.
Amandeep Murria outlines the steps taken on his behalf and which secured a most satisfactory result for him.
The Facts | Kangs Criminal Team
Our client acknowledged limited involvement in the criminal activity but not to the extent alleged by the Prosecution.
He wished to plead guilty in respect of his limited involvement and to avoid the worry, pressure and uncertainties that attach to a criminal trial before the Crown Court.
The Procedure Adopted | Kangs Criminal Advisors
Having discussed in detail with our client all of the circumstances leading to the prosecution, it was decided that his best interests would be served by preparing a detailed Basis of Plea setting out the extent of his limited involvement.
Following detailed and successful negotiations with the Prosecution, the written Basis of Plea which had been prepared was agreed.
These successful negotiations enabled the necessary arrangements to be made to enable the Judge, at the subsequent Mention Hearing, to give a Goodyear Indication.
At that Mention Hearing, the Judge indicated that, should a guilty plea be entered by our client upon the agreed written Basis, the starting point for sentencing purposes would be a Community Order.
The Successful Result | Kangs Criminal Defence Team
As the result of the Indication received from the Judge, our client entered a guilty plea and his case was adjourned for Sentence.
At his Sentencing Hearing on the 24th February 2017, our client was made subject to a Community Order, with supporting requirements.
Our client was absolutely delighted with the outcome and that by adopting the tactics explained to him, he had been able to clearly put his point of view to the Court without the drama and stress of an unpredictable trial.
