Following a four-day trial at the Central Criminal Court, Keelan Johnson was found not guilty by reason of insanity and thus criminally insane, after prosecution and defence doctors agreed that he was severely mentally unwell. On the 11th of November 2022, the defendant was given a hospital order under section 37 of The Mental Health Act 1983, with a section 41 restriction. This indicates he will not be released without the express authority of the Home Office.
Maryam Syed was instructed from the outset and throughout by London CPS.
