Conspiracy to commit armed robbery charge dropped at Kingston Crown Court

  • Posted

Flying Squad officers swooped on our client accused of masterminding and committing an armed robbery in a well known West London shopping centre. Charged with conspiracy to commit armed robbery with others, he was initially remanded into custody but we were able to secure him bail. First hurdle over, the next was to analyse the prosecution case and pick holes in the evidential links. We were able to demonstrate through case analysis, legal argument and a tenacious desire to act in the best interests of our client that no conspiracy existed.

We were able to successfully negotiate appropriate pleas with the Crown so that our client’s conspiracy charge was dropped and in its place he took a plea to simple theft. This meant a huge difference in sentencing and we were able to secure through good mitigation a sentence of just 18 months compared to one of over 14 years imprisonment.
