Derek Bentley (30 June 1933 – 28 January 1953) was an English man who was hanged for the murder of a policeman, whose death occurred in the course of a burglary attempt. Christopher Craig, then aged 16, a friend and accomplice of Bentley, was accused of the murder itself. Bentley was convicted as a party to the crime, by the English law principle of common purpose, "joint enterprise", as the burglary had been committed in mutual understanding. The trial was hugely controversial even at the time.
