Dr Felicity Gerry KC secures an acquittal in a “joint enterprise” murder by shooting in Dudley.

Published: 20th January 2023

A jury sitting before Bennathan J at the Loughborough Super Court returned not guilty verdicts for Felicity’s client on both murder and a firearms offence on 18 January 2023 after a 3 month trial.

The case was alleged to be pre planned by 8 defendants but, during the course of the trial, the case against Felicity’s client changed to the point that the judicial directions properly asked the jury to consider whether the prosecution had proved he had carried out any relevant conduct at all.

Felicity led Afzal Anwar of 33 Bedford Row and was instructed by Sardar Asghar of DNL Law Ltd.
