Carina Clare has represented a defendant who entered a guilty plea to conspiracy to rob as part of a gang of teenagers using mopeds to snatch mobile phones. There were in excess of 100 grabs, including an attempt to snatch a mobile phone from the former Chancellor, George Osborne.
The defendants were apprehended due to the high resolution photographs taken by a journalist who was present at the scene of one of the snatches. The quality was so high that the defendants could be identified by details including chewed fingernails and freckles.
The 18 years old defendant was sentenced to 5 years and 3 months in custody.
Carina was instructed by Newgate Solicitors
