Brian Altman QC prosecutes Russell Bishop

Cases 11 Dec 18

Brian Altman QC has led the prosecution of Russell Bishop for the ‘Babes in the Wood’ murder trial. Although Bishop was tried and acquitted of the murders of 9-year-old Karen Hadaway and Nicola Fellows in Brighton in 1986, the acquittals were quashed in the Court of Appeal in December 2017, and a retrial ordered under the double jeopardy rules based on new and compelling evidence. Bishop was convicted after only a two-and-a-half hour retirement following a 9 week case and was sentenced to life with a minimum term of 36 years.
