Jordan Towers, victim of the joint enterprise doctrine

Jordan’s case has been one of the more widely-discussed convictions brought about via the recently discredited “joint enterprise” ruling. Jordan was out with two friends when one of them produced a knife and stabbed someone. He didn’t realise what had happened, but the victim died later. All three were convicted of murder.

This case is covered by a clear and well written website, which also explains how the joint enterprise law is applied in practice: click here to visit Justice for Jordan Towers
