Mrs. S was a hardworking, married woman who enjoyed a quiet life. Unknown to her, her partner would consume class B drugs, mostly cannabis. However, her partner would only use it for personal use, and was not involved in distributing class B drugs. However, when the police arrested Mr. Z, her partner’s dealer, her partner’s phone number was discovered, and Mrs. S was unwittingly roped into a large-scale arrest, and slapped with charges of possession with intent to supply class B drugs and possessing criminal property. Shocked at the allegations, she immediately contacted us.
Our drugs solicitors immediately confronted the case, determined to uncover the objective truth. After meticulously analysing the evidence submitted by the prosecution, combing through our client’s financial statements, medical records, and character references, our criminal defence solicitors were able to objectively prove that our client was wholly innocent.
Before the trial even began, our criminal defence solicitors submitted the evidence they gathered to the prosecution and the judge, objectively proving that our client was an innocent woman who was swept up in the arrests, and was fully unaware of her partner’s actions. Furthermore, the cash found at their house was hers which she earned through her employment – and had submitted pay slips and financial statements to prove it. Faced with the facts, the prosecution realised the severity of the false allegations, and immediately withdrew all charges, freeing our client.
