First Conviction for Corporate Manslaughter under the UK’s Corporate Manslaughter and Corporat

The UK has now seen its first criminal conviction of a corporation for homicide. CMS Cameron McKenna provides the story in an article here at Mondaq.

The defendant company, a small entity with only 8 employees, "was convicted of the offence of corporate manslaughter under the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007. The conviction by jury follows a lengthy trial into the death of Alex Wright, a young geologist employed by the company, on 5 September 2008. Mr Wright is believed to have died whilst investigating soil conditions in a deep trench, which collapsed and killed him."
