Henrietta Paget and Sophie Murray secure convictions against gang of armed robbers

Henrietta Paget and Sophie Murray, ably assisted by Daniel Henderson (pupil at Foundry Chambers), have been prosecuting a series of violent robberies targeting homes in the Surrey/Sussex area where masked men would threaten the occupants with weapons and steal high value goods to order. The four defendants were convicted on all counts following a six-week trial and were each sentenced today to between 15-18 years imprisonment. The trial was the culmination of a 3-year investigation by three police areas and involved the careful presentation of extensive telephone, cell site, satellite and GPS tracker evidence, CCTV sightings and particularly complex issues concerning DNA analysis. Henrietta and Sophie were instructed by Matthew Capes of CPS South East.
