A recent case handled by our expert defence team resulted in a suspended sentence for a client facing serious charges of possession with intent to supply class A drugs. Despite pleading guilty, our solicitors employed strategic tactics that triggered empathy from the court, ultimately leading to a rare outcome.
Our client, Mr. I, was arrested in Finsbury Park with a cache of illegal substances, including cocaine and heroin. Through in-depth analysis of his character and personal circumstances, our team discovered that he was going through a difficult time with his terminally ill mother and turned to drugs to cope with the news.
Our defence lawyers meticulously dissected all evidence, including unused material, to uncover any inconsistencies or biases against our client. Furthermore, we gathered witness and character statements from friends, family, and co-workers to prove his good character to the jury. These statements highlighted his nature as a caring family man, and as the one responsible for putting food on the table. This way, we were able to avoid a custodial sentence, and have an order for community hours be served instead.
By avoiding a custodial sentence, we were able to ensure positive opportunities for growth and reform for our client and his family.
