Junior Bradshaw gets 18 years for role in Joss Stone murder plot


Junior Bradshaw, 32, from Manchester, was today handed an 18 year sentence for his role in a plot to rob and murder singer Joss Stone.

Barry Hughes, Chief Crown Prosecutor for CPS South West said: "Today's sentencing brings to a close a lengthy and complicated case which has been very much in the public eye since Junior Bradshaw and Kevin Liverpool were arrested in June 2011. The CPS worked closely with Devon and Cornwall police from the start, giving them authorisation to charge the pair with conspiracy to murder, conspiracy to commit robbery and conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm with intent. Following a trial at Exeter Crown Court they were both found guilty of conspiracy to murder and conspiracy to rob.

"Junior Bradshaw will now serve an 18 year sentence for his role in the conspiracy. His co-conspirator Kevin Liverpool was handed a life sentence, to serve a minimum of ten years imprisonment, earlier this year. I hope the conclusion of the case brings some comfort to Ms Stone, for whom this must have been a very difficult time."
