R v M, Preston Crown Court

Carson Kaye was instructed to defend in a high profile European Arrest Warrant-backed extradition and Assault Occasioning Grievous Bodily Harm matter, stemming from the violent disorder at the Liverpool v Roma Champions League game in 2018. Given the publicity and sensitivity of the offence, the case required a more careful approach than most in drafting and submitting a basis of plea. We were able to deliver and fair and considered sentence of 3 years and 6 months’ imprisonment for our client.
