Case News: Youth Defendant Acquitted at Murder Trial at Birmingham Crown Court

Managing Partner and Head of the Criminal Department Adrian Bryant successfully represented a 16 year old youth defendant who had been charged, along with four other youths for the murder of Ian Kirwan, who was shopping at Asda Redditch in March 2022.

Ian Kirwan died from a stab to the heart; two of the five youths aged 14 and 16 years were found guilty of violent disorder at Birmingham Crown Court on 18 January 2023.

Charles Strachan’s criminal team prepared the case with vigour which ultimately led to the full acquittal of the youth defendant who was merely with the other youths but took no part in any violent attack nor did he have any intention to.
