Largest Conspiracy to Supply Drugs in Sussex
Our Criminal Defence Solicitors were instructed to represent the alleged mastermind, behind the supply of over 18kgs of heroine in Sussex. The street value of the drugs was estimated at more than £2.5 million.
Our client, charged with 4 others, of Conspiracy to Supply Class A Drugs, pleaded guilty and received a lenient sentence from the Court despite his leading role, the nature of the offence and the substantial value of the drugs.
Substantial work was done preparing his mitigation with the objective of ensuring a lenient sentence, which ordinarily would have been int he double figures. Our Criminal Solicitors stopped at nothing to collate necessary materials to persuade the Judge to impose the shortest term of imprisonment possible.
In confiscation proceedings, our client was ordered to pay back only £20,000.
