Tasmin Malcom appeared for man charged following violence at the Luton Carnival in May 2016.


Tasmin Malcom, instructed by Simon Hancock of Mitchell Solicitors, appeared for Jason Kiasala at his sentence following violence at the Luton Carnival in May 2016.

The protracted incident was covered by significant CCTV leading to Jason being charged with wounding with intent, violent disorder and possession of a bladed article. Following negotiations by Jason Cross with the prosecution he pleased guilty to the lesser offence of wounding, violent disorder and possession of a bladed article

The Crown submitted that his actions fell at the highest level in the sentencing guidelines for offences of wounding, but, Tasmin successfully convinced the Judge through her submissions that he should be dealt with at a lower level.  

Jason was sentenced to a total of sixteen months imprisonment and his brother, Nathan, was sentenced to two years imprisonment.

A further defendant received two years imprisonment for possession of a bladed article following a trial and received an additional two years eight months for separate offending of possessing drugs with intent to supply.
