David Morton Defends Client Linked to “7M” Gang

by Kenworthy's Chambers 28/03/2019

David Morton, instructed by John Blacks Solicitors, represented Mr Williams at his sentence hearing at Manchester Crown Square; his client was sentenced for nine counts of supplying class A drugs, two counts of handling stolen goods and one count of dangerous driving.

The defendant was linked to the notorious 7M gang in Longsight and Ardwick, with eight of his co-defendants being sentenced to life after being found guilty for Murder. David Morton stated during mitigation how the client had a "promising boxing career, before a wrist injury halted his progress" and "he became involved in the wrong crowd after his injury".

Sentencing Judge Timothy Smith sentenced Mr Williams to 50 months imprisonment. The Manchester Evening News reports further here.
