Tuckers client acquitted after 50 day trial

August 22, 2017

Manchester Partner Leigh Wright, along with senior Caseworker Justine Fairfield and instructed Counsel Suhkdev Garcha successfully secured the acquittal of NM after more than 50 days of trial at Birmingham Crown Court.

Mr M was charged as part of a conspiracy with intent to supply class A,B and C drugs.  The prosecution believed he was involved in the organisation of the sale of contraband on the street, having purchased the drugs from an alleged co-conspirator in the Leicester area.

The allegations centred upon what the prosecution considered conspicuous spending in Ibiza, Dubai and Australia, relying on evidence from social media purporting to show that he had an extravagant lifestyle. However, as a result of the defence team tracing witnesses from across the globe, it was demonstrated that Mr M business dealings were legitimate, resulting in his acquittal after a lengthy trial.

Mr M said at the end of his ordeal, “I would to thank both Leigh and Justine at Tuckers solicitors.  I have just gone through possibly the most difficult time in my life and from the offset their support was phenomenal… Justine’s professional and honest approach kept my moral high at difficult times during a long case, and Leigh’s legal advice was second to none.”
