Mr. A, like many during the COVID-19 pandemic, had turned to class B drugs in order to cope with the sudden, prolonged changes in society. In particular, he obtained a few extra grams of class B drugs (cannabis), as the lockdowns were getting progressively longer.
He was arrested shortly after, and the police found the drugs in his pocket and accused him of possession with intent to supply.
Imagine his surprise when they slapped him with charges of possession with intent to supply. Even though he admitted to possessing the drugs, and pled guilty, the police still filed wrongful charges of possession with intent to supply, and the prosecution carried the case forward. That was when he called us.
Upon contacting us, our drugs solicitors immediately sprang to action, wasting no time to get to the bottom of it all. The first thing we did was analyse the evidence – including interview recordings, witness statements, and forensic evidence. Our criminal defence solicitors worked with financial experts that combed through our client’s bank statements and found the proof – the police were lying about the amount of class B drugs found, and how our client made his money.
Our drugs solicitors definitively proved that our client was wholly innocent – he made his money as an Amazon driver and a landscaper, and that the amount the police claimed he had was greatly exaggerated. After submitting the voluminous evidence to court, and arguing about our client’s good faith in admitting his known guilt, the judge realised the prosecution was patently in the wrong, and immediately acquitted our client for the charge of possession with intent to supply. As for the charge of possession with intent to supply class B drugs, the judge recognised our client’s good faith and remorse, and let him free.
