Sarah Knight

Sarah Knight prosecuted a ‘wicked’ group who plotted to kidnap a family man and blackmail his father.

This case involved a cruel and calculated plot by a group of men to lure a family man on a false pretence to a location in Nottingham, from where he was kidnapped. He was bound, gagged, viciously attacked, and humiliated. Repeated threatening demands were made to his father as part of this ordeal in an attempt to extort more than a quarter of a million pounds from him in exchange for the safe return of his son.

Sarah was instructed by the CPS Complex Crime Unit, Nottingham.
