The sentencing of a 19-year-old who was found guilty of being involved in a knife attack in a Norwich last year has been adjourned to allow the teenager to find legal representation.

Earlier this year Brandon Green, of Tuckswood Lane, Norwich, was found guilty of wounding with intent, assault causing actual bodily harm to a man and actual bodily harm to a relative of the victim following a knife attack in a flat on Jewson Road.

Appearing in Norwich Crown for sentencing on Thursday, May 23, the court heard how Green had fired his previous solicitor leaving him with no legal representation.

Adjourning the case to allow Green to find someone to represent him, judge Alice Robinson told Green that the more serious of the offences he was convicted of had sentencing guidelines of 12-years in custody which was "a very long time for a young man to spend in prison or a youth offending institute" and that is was in his best interests to find representation.

The case has been adjourned until July 17.
