Jo Morris, instructed by Rehana Khanam, Central Law Practice solicitors represented a defendant charged with conspiracy to supply drugs on a commercial scale. The Crown alleged that he had a leading role in the conspiracy and had gang affiliations.
The defendant was arrested in a property that was linked to ‘country line’ drugs supply. Cell site evidence suggested that he had travelled repeatedly from London to Cambridgeshire throughout the indictment period with his co defendants, some of whom had pleaded guilty. His DNA was found upon the outer packaging of the drugs. He had property that was beyond his legitimate income.
After a month long trial, which involved challenging forensic and cell site evidence, not guilty verdicts were returned on every count. Other defendants were convicted and face lengthy sentences.
