Ken was 19 working full time and training to be a youth offending officer.
He and his school friends were attacked by another group of men during which one of them was fatally injured.
Initially Ken tried to quell the fight telling them ‘they didn’t want any trouble’ and he turned his back.
He was knocked semi- conscious to the floor where he tried to extricate himself from the ensuring struggle. and it was agreed in court that he did not have a weapon nor did he participate in attack.
Ken co-operated fully with the police believing it the ‘right’ thing to do. It was his testimony that helped the CPS get convictions including his own16 year Life joint enterprise murder.
