Neil Griffin leading James Gwatkin, instructed by Mel Kelemework of ABV Solicitors, represented a client charged with conspiracy to supply class A drugs in a three week trial at Harrow Crown Court.
The prosecution case was that SH played a leading role running a drugs line that had operated around Harrow in 2020. The defence involved detailed scrutiny of over 15,000 pages of telephone & cell-site evidence, seeking to refute assertions made and inferences sought by the prosecution and robustly challenging expert evidence and extensive reports. SH’s two previous convictions for class A drug trafficking offences were introduced by the prosecution, as was fingerprint evidence purporting to link SH to a drugs ledger found in a co-defendant’s property.
SH was unanimously acquitted of being involved in the conpsiracy.
