Death Sentence Representation
On a pro-bono basis, we represented a client who had been convicted and handed a death sentence by the High Court of Kenya at Nairobi.
The appeal at the Court of Appeal resulted in revising the death sentence to a 25-year sentence. The 25 years include the years he was in remand since 2008 and the years already served under the death sentence.
