R v KA (Southwark Crown Court)


Kitan Ososami’s client was charged with having a bladed article in public, namely a knife. He raised the defence of good reason as he was a chef and had been at a trial shift earlier in the day.

The jury unanimously acquitted Kitan’s client. Therefore, he avoided a minimum term of six months imprisonment as someone with a previous relevant conviction.

Kitan was instructed by Tony Burton of JS Defence Lawyers.
