Published: 28th July 2023

Jonathan Page and Fahrid Chishty have successfully defended a teenager charged with two counts of assisting offenders in connection with a gang-related murder in Slough on 2nd October 2022. The nine-week case featured high volumes of expert evidence relating to CCTV, Cell Site Data, Telematics, DNA and Forensic Neuropsychology, as well as a complex history of retributive stabbings between rival Organised Criminal Groups (OCGs) between 2017-2022. On 26th July 2023, a jury at Reading Crown Court unanimously acquitted D5 who was represented by our barristers. He was the only defendant on the indictment to receive Not Guilty verdicts.

Jonathan and Fahrid were instructed by Shenel Johnson of SVS Solicitors and received praise from their lay client for their performance, professionalism and cultural intelligence.
