Jason Sugarman KC’s client acquitted of murder

Jason Sugarman KC led Balvinder Bhatti, Bhatti Chambers and Rose Court Chambers and instructed by Asad Khan Hussain Solicitors in the defence of Tamari Greaves

A Nottingham jury unanimously found Mr Greaves not guilty of murdering Stephen McCarron at Nottingham Crown Court on the 21st December 2022. 81 Video recordings found on Mr McCarron's phone revealed a what the prosecution described as a campaign of hate and violence against his neighbours and community. The jury heard an email read from McCarron to his father about how he planned to 'get one of them' referring to local youths which was described as the words of a perhaps paranoid man with a siege mentality. After much deliberation the jury reached a not guilty verdict to murder but found Mr Tamari guilty of manslaughter by a majority direction 10-2.
