Mo's Story

Accused, Series 2 Episode 2 of 4

Mo Murray has taken a stand against drugs, gangs and gun crime in her community, but now she stands alongside her mother Maureen and her 17-year-old son Jake in the dock. Why?

Hairdressing salon owner Mo refuses to be intimidated by the gangs in her neighbourhood. She and her best friend Sue take a defiant stand and open up for business ignoring the dire warnings of their teenage sons Jake and Sean, and Mo's mother.

Today is not a day like any other. It is the funeral of a local gang member, and his gangster leader Cormack has sent a message to all the local shops - stay closed and show respect, or there will be consequences.

The next day, everything appears back to normal at Mo's salon - until a single gunshot is heard. In a state of rising panic and foreboding, the friends rush out to the street to find one of their sons is dying on the pavement.

Will the enormity of this brutal and senseless murder lead to the mothers standing shoulder to shoulder against the gangs, or will this tragedy rip them apart?

Difficult and fraught time passes until arrests are made. And now, the Murray family are in the dock and the painful truth is coming out. What will the jury's verdict be?
