Following a 4 week trial at Wolverhampton Crown Court that concluded yesterday, Oliver Woolhouse, led by Amjad Malik KC, secured a unanimous acquittal of Murder, Manslaughter and Possession of Bladed Articles on behalf of his client Joseph Whittaker.

Oliver was instructed by Smith Dawson Solicitors in this high profile case that has hit headlines because a 16 year old boy was tragically killed in a case of mistaken identity.

Two co-defendants were found guilty of murdering the 16 year old boy by attacking him from behind as he was walking home listening to music on his headphones.
