Kevin Hutchinson-Foster was today convicted at the Central Criminal Court of transferring a gun to Mark Duggan. Alison Saunders, CPS London Chief Crown Prosecutor, said:
“The CPS proceeded with this prosecution based on evidence that Kevin Hutchinson-Foster had transferred a gun to Mark Duggan hidden in a shoe box in Tottenham on 4 August 2011. He had already lied about possessing the same gun and beating a person with it six days earlier, despite strong evidence linking him to that offence. He eventually pleaded guilty to those charges and today a jury found him guilty of this further offence.
“We are committed to tackling the menace of gun crime and will continue working closely with the police to pursue and prosecute those who supply or transfer the weapons that have caused terrible pain to so many families. This conviction sends a strong message that gun crime and violence will not be tolerated in London.”
