Ben Thomas successfully prosecutes Class A Drug ConspiracyPark Square Barristers
Ben Thomas successfully prosecuted two Defendants for Conspiracy to Supply £59,000 worth of Heroin. The case involved establishing links to various properties in the Calderdale area, where significant quantities of drugs and related paraphernalia were seized by the police. At the start of the trial both of the Defendants pleaded guilty to an offence of Conspiracy to Supply Cannabis but denied that they were in any way involved or connected with the heroin. Following a nine day trial they were unanimously convicted by the jury of Conspiracy to Supply Heroin. The case involved resisting a number of applications by the defence to exclude evidence and detailed consideration of the issues regarding the waiver of Legal Professional Privilege.
