24 years in jail for Hull gangster prosecuted by David Gordon and Ben Thomas.

A Criminal gangster who sold drugs, guns and ammunition in Hull has been sentenced to 24 years in prison after a long running trial.

Liam Windass had already pleaded guilty to a host of offences including possession of firearms and ammunition, conspiracy to supply heroin, possession of cocaine and concealing criminal property – but he was also unanimously convicted of conspiracy to supply cannabis after an eight-week-trial at the end of April.

Several other defendants in the criminal gang were convicted of similar offences and they have recently sentenced by HHJ Richardson QC.

David Gordon led Ben Thomas in prosecuting the Police Operation known as “Operation Gold”.

In the last few days we have received excellent feedback from the CPS and the Police about the way Mr Gordon and Mr Thomas handled this tricky and complicated case.

Both Counsel were thanked for their thorough and helpful approach, their hard work and commitment,  approaching the issues as a team and ensuring the case was delivered to the highest standard.
