Felicity Gerry QC secures an acquittal for a child client on an alleged “joint enterprise” murder after a submission of no case to answer.
In a trial involving special measures including an intermediary for her vulnerable child client at Manchester Crown Court, Felicity successfully argued that there was no evidence to prove murder.
Later her submissions on knowledge were successfully added to the legal directions on other counts. Verdicts on manslaughter and conspiracy to rob were entered yesterday and sentence will take place on 11 June.
