Boy M launches appeal against conviction in Rhys Jones murder case


A LIVERPOOL teenager launched an appeal against his conviction.

The 16-year-old, who can only be identified as Boy M, was at home in Croxteth just after 7.30pm on Wednesday, August 22, 2007, when killer Sean Mercer knocked on his door.

From Boy Mís room, Mercer summoned fellow Croxteth Crew gang members, who began the cover-up.

After a series of police interviews, Boy M eventually admitted what had gone on after innocent 11-year-old Rhys was killed in the car park of Croxteth Parkís Fir Tree Pub.

But when the case came to court, he denied assisting an offender, saying he was acting under duress.

The trial judge dismissed his defence and now Boy Mís solicitors have filed papers with the Court of Appeal, challenging Mr Justice Irwinís ruling and the subsequent conviction.

He was given a two-year supervision order and curfew.

On Wednesday, the Attorney General referred co-defendant James Yatesí seven-year jail term to the Court of Appeal, which will decide if the punishment for the 21-year-old, of Dodman Road, Croxteth, was too soft.

Not surprised they dismissed the defence of duress - there was a case about 20 yrs ago that the House of Lords held that duress is not available as a defence in murder to either a principal or secondary (as Boy M would be classed as) party.
