Kangs Solicitors have recently successfully assisted a client charged with Robbery and Theft before Birmingham Crown Court.
Nazaqat Maqsoom of Kangs Solicitors reports on the circumstances.
The Events | Kangs Criminal Defence Solicitors
In June 2017 an incident occurred outside our client’s home which lead to the allegation that our client, along with others, had been involved in a robbery during which a firearm had been used.
The incident was witnessed by a passer-by.
How We Were Able To Assist | Kangs Trial Preparation Team
- We attended with our client and guided him during his police interviews.
- We discussed in detail with our client the circumstances and took meticulous notes of his instructions.
- We examined the Police witness statements and CCTV Evidence with our client.
- We attended with our client before the Magistrates’ Court when the case was transferred to the Crown Court for a Plea and Trial Preparation Hearing
The Plea & Trial Preparation Hearing | Kangs Crown Court Defence Solicitors
Following detailed discussions, the Prosecution accepted that the evidence did not support the allegations of robbery & theft.
However, the CCTV evidence showed our client committing the assault which was accepted by our client who maintained that this had occurred as the result of provocation.
Accordingly, a Basis of Plea was prepared and accepted by the Prosecution setting out the limited extent of liability on the part of our client.
Our client entered a guilty plea to a single count of Assault Occasioning Actual Bodily Harm and the case was adjourned for Sentencing.
The Successful Outcome | Kangs Sentencing Hearing Solicitors
Having considered all mitigation submitted on behalf of our client and his Basis of Plea the Judge sentenced our client to:
- A twelve months Community Order
- along with sixty hours of unpaid work,
which represented an outstanding result for our client for which he was extremely pleased.
