Mr. S was in the car with his friends when the police pulled them over and conducted a search of the car. After thoroughly searching the car, the police found large quantities of class A drugs in the back, and charged Mr. S and the other passengers and driver with possession with intent to supply.
Fearful for his future and determined to prove his innocence in a case of possession with intent to supply class A drugs, Mr. S contacted us to represent him. Our criminal defence solicitors immediately sprang to action, to uncover the truth of the matter. They began their investigation by closely analysing all evidence submitted by the police and the prosecution. Following this, our drugs solicitors recruited several mobile phone experts and forensic scientists to uncover and analyse all forensic evidence from the scene of the crime (including if there were any of our clients’ fingerprints on the bags of class A drugs) and on mobile phone evidence from our client’s cell phones. The investigation also included gathering witness statements from the co-defendants and any other witnesses present in the area, and character statements from our client’s friends and family members who could attest to his good nature and the fact that he has never had any issues around consuming or dealing Class A drugs before.
Before the trial began, our Stuart Miller Solicitors were able to prove that there was no forensic evidence that linked our client to the drugs in question, and there were no calls or messages from our client’s cell phones that would indicate any activities around possession with intent to supply or distributing drugs. During the trial, our criminal defence solicitors submitted the overwhelming evidence gathered, and successfully proved that our client was simply in the wrong place, at the wrong time. Following a week-long trial filled with rebutting faulty evidence from the prosecution and continually advocating our client’s story, the jury realised the truth of our client’s innocence, and acquitted him of all charges.
