A teenager who lied to police after he killed grammar school pupil Yousef Makki has been sentenced at Manchester Crown Court.
Yousef Makki: Teenager Sentenced For Perverting The Course Of Justice
The 17-year-old, known during the trial as Boy A, was a 16-month detention and training order in which he will spend eight months in custody.
Makki, 17, was stabbed in the heart with a flick-knife in Hale Barns, Cheshire, in March. 
In a trial earlier this month, Boy A, was found not guilty of his murder. He was also found not guilty of an alternative charge of manslaughter.
A second youth, also aged 17, was found not guilty of perverting the course of justice and not guilty of conspiracy to rob.
The teenagers had previously admitted possessing a knife and Boy A pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice by lying to police.
Neither of the defendants, both of whom are from wealthy Cheshire families, can be named as they are aged under 18.
 The families of both teenage defendants were in the public gallery but Makki’s family chose to boycott the sentencing.
When Boy A was found not guilty of his murder on July 12, the verdict was met with anger. Yousef’s father Ghaleb Makki exploded in court, shouting: “Fuck you! Where’s the justice for my son! Where’s the justice?”
On Wednesday evening ahead of the sentencing, about 120 people including Makki’s family gathered outside Manchester Crown Court, demonstrating “for justice”. 
The crowd held signs with the the killed teenager’s photo on saying “Justice for Yousef Makki” and chanted: “No justice, no peace.”.
Nighat Awan, who took part in the demonstration, told BBC News: “We’re hearing of knife crime every day of the week. There are ways, without it costing a fortune, to curtail this.
“Our kids are good kids, poor and rich, it’s just the wrong person, the wrong time... and that’s how it can happen to any of us.”Related... Father Shouts 'Where's The Justice For My Son?'
