Bridget Todd, led by Tracy Ayling Q.C. (2 Bedford Row) prosecute Daniel Wallace and Kacey Adams at Maidstone Crown Court for a violent attack and burglary on a couple in their home.

Mr Wallance and Mr Adams were sentenced to life sentences for beating up the couple and dousing them with boiling hot water during the burglary.

Mr Adams and Mr Wallace, together with another man who has never been caught, fled with about £50,000 and jetted off to Dubai.

They were arrested on a return flight in May 2016, and their luggage was found to contain more than £18,000 of luxury goods.

The pair were each given three life sentences.

Two were for aggravated burglary and causing grievous bodily harm with intent, which they admitted at an earlier hearing at Maidstone Crown Court.

The third, with a minimum jail term of 12-and-a-half years for conspiracy to murder, was related to a drive-by shooting in Stanford-Le-Hope, Essex, in May 2016 which their victim survived.

All sentences will be served concurrently.

The case has been reported in the national and regional press and the link to the BBC News article is above.
