Stephen Akinsanya successfully represented a 13 year old charged with attempted murder. Despite early pleas to grievous bodily harm and possession of an offensive weapon at Croydon Court the prosecution remained adamant that the case of attempted murder must continue against this youth because of the stance taken by the older co-defendant. The question of intent to kill was left to the jury following the defendant giving evidence and defence closing speech. The defendant was unanimously acquitted of attempted murder.
