Yasin Patel Secures Acquittal for Young Defendant in Case Where a Knife was Lodged in a Man’s Face

A teenager on trial for serious violent offences was acquitted by a jury following a trial.  

The incident occurred in the home counties. The victim had an operation on his face after he was attacked with a knife, part of which had broken off and lodged in his face.

Leanne Brown of Cartwright King Solicitors who instructed Yasin Patel stated that she “was delighted with the teenager’s acquittal but that it seems grossly unfair that this young man should be in custody for 15 months awaiting trial.  Young people should not be waiting so long in custody. This is wrong.”

The acquitted young man was released from custody at the court.
