Kevin Craigie was convicted in 1991 of the Joint Enterprise murder of Kenneth Rothwell in his home in London. His co accused was a Mark Fuller. Craigie went on to serve a 13 year sentence but Fuller only served 10 years. Fuller later admitted to clubbing Mr Rothwell over the head with a piece of wood while Craigie for his part says that he tried to intervene and was accidentally hit by Fuller.
Craigie admits that Mr Rothwell was still alive and breathing after the attack but he and Fuller failed to provide any assistance to the victim who later died of his injuries. Craigie and Fuller then set about ransacking the property and stole several items from the house. They also stole Mr Rothwell's car and were later picked up by police driving the wrong way up a one-way street in London.
In recent years Craigie has been involved with the Citizens Advice Bureau rising to the post of Deputy Manager. He has also been involved with the Justice on Appeal Group and claimed to be the Managing Director while Darren Bolger was registered as a Director.http://uk.linkedin.com/pub/darren-bolger/31/1b9/564
Darren Thomas Bolger, a 41 year old male from SW19, was found to have taken amounts of money prior to starting building works such as residential extensions and loft conversions under the name of several different companies including Building Matters London Ltd. Once he had obtained money from the home owners he would then leave the works unfinished and only return to collect his tools.
Thanks to the diligent work by officers from Hammersmith and Fulham led by DC Angela Mills and DS Richard Gilbert, Bolger received a three year custodial sentence at Norwich Crown Court due to one of the victims being a QC who occasionally sat in London Court. The trial was scheduled for three weeks but actually ran for four months. Witnesses were flown in from America and three defence witnesses were arrested for failing to answer summonses.http://www.westlondontoday.co.uk/node/4644http://content.met.police.uk/News/Builder-found-guilty-of-defrauding-local-residents/1400008180757/1257246745756
After Bolger's conviction for fraud in April 2012, Craigie took over running the Justice on Appeal group.http://uk.linkedin.com/pub/kevin-craigie/15/a26/480
