Delighted Client Retains Liberty | Kangs Criminal Defence Solicitors


Kangs Solicitors has enabled a client charged with robbery and possession of an offensive weapon to retain his liberty.

Nazaqat Maqsoom of Kangs Solicitors reports upon the circumstances. 

The Circumstances | Kangs Criminal Defence Solicitors

  • Our client was one of a group which stole cash from premises when a weapon and violence were used.
  • Our client was the only person arrested and was identified by CCTV and a witness.

How We Assisted Our Client | Kangs Solicitors Trial Preparation Team

  • Having secured bail for our client, the Kangs team thoroughly reviewed the evidence that had been served by the Prosecution and took detailed instructions from him.
  • Suitable highly experienced Queen’s Counsel, Michael Duck QC, was identified and instructed.  
  • During the course of meetings with our client he was advised in detail upon his position and the options available to him. 
  • Following a conference with Queen’s Counsel our client confirmed his intention not to defend the charges.
  • Detailed discussions with the Prosecution resulted in an agreement that our client would plead guilty ‘on a Basis’ to robbery with a not guilty plea being accepted in relation to possession of an offensive weapon.
  • The Kangs team worked with our client in preparing his detailed mitigation to present to the court.

The Sentencing Hearing | Kangs Criminal Defence Specialists

  • Although the Prosecution placed the accepted offence in the category B/2, which attracts a prison sentence starting at four years, within a range of three to six years, Queen’s Counsel on behalf of our client submitted strong mitigation including his age and previous lack of any convictions.
  • Following his consideration of the detailed mitigation that had been prepared and submitted to the Judge he sentenced our client to two years custody which was suspended for a period of two years, together with an Order for unpaid work and payment of compensation.
  • Our client and his family were delighted with the outcome.
