Drugs Acquittal at Lewes Crown Court

MPR Solicitors secured the only acquittal in a large-scale drugs conspiracy case which was heard at Lewes Crown Court. The case originally involved 18 defendants charged with conspiracy to supply millions of pounds of class A drugs, importation and money laundering offences. The investigation spanned months of police surveillance, covert audio probes in vehicles and voice recognition evidence.

Our client faced many months on remand awaiting his trial but when the time came we were able to successfully challenge and discredit the forensic evidence in the case which was presented by the prosecution. Our client walked free from court upon his acquittal. The defence team in this case was led by Abdullah Al-Yunusi, a senior barrister at the Firm who regularly defends in high-profile cases across the country. He was assisted by a Partner from the Firm’s Serious and Complex Crime team.

It helped our client’s case that he had requested MPR Solicitors to represent him from the very beginning at the police station stage of the investigation. This can often be the most critical stage of any criminal proceedings and the right legal advice at an early stage can make or break a case at trial.
