Our client had been recommended to our Nick Seeley and appeared at Inner London Crown Court at the end of January 2018, where he attended for trial in connection with various allegations of possession with intent to supply Class A and Class B drugs and being in possession of criminal property, which was a substantial amount of cash.
After being on bail for over a year and having first appeared before Camberwell Magistrates Court at the beginning of Feb 2017, his case was thoroughly prepared and on the day of Trial, the Prosecution finally accepted a Basis of Plea from our client, whereby they accepted that he had not been involved in the commercial supply of Class A drugs. A Basis of Plea is a document in which a Defendant may accept his guilt but only on certain accepted facts, often not accepting everything that the Prosecution may allege.
In light of the facts been agreed between us and the Prosecution, the Judge was persuaded to deal with our client on the day. He proceeded to impose a Suspended Sentence for the Drugs offences. Specifically, for the Supplying Class A Drugs he received 13 month prison sentence which was suspended for two years and for the Supplying Class B drugs he received an 8 month sentence suspended for 2 years to run concurrently.
This case, a recommendation to the firm, reflects our expertise in dealing with drugs cases and those involving money laundering. The very favourable outcome reflects the expert way in which the case was prepared.
