Jeremy Hill-Baker secures suspended prison sentence for defendant’s role in Bradford Park fight death.Park Square Barristers
Mohammed Miah, received a suspended prison sentence for his involvement in a fight resulting in the death of a man. He was given a 21-month jail sentence, suspended for a year, earlier at Bradford Crown Court.
The court heard that the victim was struck over the head with a baseball bat suffering fatal injuries.
Miah was charged after admitting his presence at the park to undercover police officers in recorded conversations. He arrived at the park after receiving a phone call but did not possess a weapon nor use violence. He accepted that he had driven a man away from the park following the attack.
Jeremy Hill-Baker, highlighted that the defendant was 21 and had no previous convictions at the time. Undercover officers had “befriended” his client and plied him with drink to extract information. “Such admissions as he did make, resulted in him being prosecuted” Jeremy Hill-Baker stated.
On top of his suspended sentence, the defendant was ordered to complete 180 hours unpaid community work.
