Appeal Dismissed In Attempted Murder Case

August 24, 2022

The court has dismissed an appeal by Jahmico Trott, who was convicted of offences including attempted murder.

The ruling noted that “On 30 March 2021, following a retrial, Jahmico Trott [“the Appellant”] was convicted by a majority verdict [11-1] of a jury for the offences of: attempted murder; using a firearm to commit an indictable offence; carrying a firearm with criminal intent; and intimidating a witness. The retrial had been consequential upon a successful appeal against conviction following an earlier trial on the attempted murder and firearms charges which had concluded on 7 March 2018.”

The appeal against the conviction was launched on grounds including that of gunshot residue evidence, however the Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal.
