Kitan Ososami secures not guilty verdicts for a youth charged with serious criminal offences.
11 Jan 2024
Kitan Ososami’s 17-year-old client was charged with affray, possession of a bladed article in public, and threatening with a bladed article in public.
The offences date back to October 2021 when her client was just 14 years old.
CCTV captured a fight in which the boy alleged to be her client brandished a large zombie knife and attempted to stab another person. He was arrested the next day and later identified by the police officer attached to his school.
He maintained that he was at home.
Kitan challenged the investigation and the police officer’s identification of her client. He was found not guilty of all charges.
Kitan was instructed by Antoinette Woghiren and Demi Azzopardi of A & A Law.
Kitan is highly experienced in representing children and young people and has secured not-guilty verdicts for charges of robbery, possession of an offensive weapon, and possession with intent to supply controlled drugs. She is knowledgeable on best practices and has written about youth justice issues for The Barrister Magazine and Youth Justice Legal Centre.Back to News
