18 year sentence for M62 fatal shooting driver – Peter Moulson QC and Ben Thomas prosecute

Mohsin Amin received an 18 year sentence yesterday following his conviction of conspiracy to possess a firearm with intent to endanger life.

Peter Moulson QC led Ben Thomas for the CPS.

Amin and another defendant David Butlin (who received 18 months for possession of an offensive weapon) were convicted at Leeds Crown Court last week following a 10 day trial before Mr Justice Turner.

Butlin and a third defendant “RA” – defended by Abdul Iqbal QC – were acquitted of firearm offences.

Amin was the driver of a car whose passenger was shot dead by police.

Yassar Yaqub was shot by armed police near the M62 on 2 January 2017.
