No5’s Daniel Oscroft defends in failed Gridlock Crew ASBO attempt
No5 barrister Daniel Oscroft has defended in a case that involved a failed attempt by Coventry’s community safety partnership to ban nine alleged members of Willenhall gang Gridlock Crew from part of Coventry.
On the third day of the ASBO hearing at Coventry Magistrates Court, barristers for the respondents asked for the application to be thrown out because of a lack of evidence.
Their request was approved for eight of the respondents. Now only one could be given an ASBO when the case concludes.
