Mr Ben Nolan QC leading Miss Laurie Scott, secure a homicide conviction after a three week trial in Sheffield Crown Court.

The jury heard evidence that the Defendant had a successful business selling class A drugs and often used violent enforcement methods.   The Defendant and two others beat the deceased with a baseball bat, punched and kicked him and then left him in the middle of a road.

He was given a 20 year minimum term.  In sentencing Mr Justice Nicol  said that this was a cowardly attack by three men on a single and particularly vulnerable victim, which took place on a public road and caused understandable fear in the community.
