Birmingham Private Detectives comment on the importance of crime prevention in children in light of the recent Independent article by Paul Peachey dated 15th April 2013: Boys sentenced for beating homeless man to death in a dare

Birmingham Private Detectives have had a great response from local schools and youth clubs regarding helping families and children feel part of the community

According to The Independent article Judge Clement Goldstone sentenced two brothers, Connor Doran, 17 and Brendon Doran 14, along with their 14 year old friend Simon Evans at Liverpool Crown Court to custodial immediate sentences for murder. The leader of the pack Connor Doran was sentenced to a minimum of 12 years. Evans was to serve at least 8 years and Brandon, who acted as look out during the attack, received six years (case number T20128036). The boys remorselessly attacked homeless man, Kevin Bennett who later died in hospital, as a dare.

The report goes on to say that Judge Goldstone also sentenced Lind Doran, the 42 year old mother of the brothers, for 30 months for perverting the course of justice and committing an act intending to pervert the course of justice (case number T20127954). When handing down the sentencing he branded Linda Doran as a “pathetic and tragic character.” As her eldest son, Ryan Doran, 24, was also serving time for an unrelated murder of another stranger he said:
“you have another son who is serving life for murder. There are not many parents who have that sort of personal agony to bear”
“But then again not that many mothers would have shown themselves to be either so unwilling or unable to shoulder the responsibility of motherhood as you have.”
A forth son, Jordon, 21 was jailed for six months for contempt of court during the trail of his brothers and mother.
