Operation Latious

This was a multi-handed conspiracy to supply cocaine throughout the East of England, but with a nationwide distribution network. Our three clients were part of a group of 21 who were prosecuted for this serious offence.

Like many conspiracy cases, the evidence in this case was exceptionally complex and detailed, with vast quantities of police observation material and huge reams of telephone records and mobile phone cellsite analysis.

The Prosecution were represented by leading counsel (a QC) but we maintained our course with one of our clients being the last remaining defendant to hold out for a trial when everyone else in the case had pleaded guilty.

In the end the Prosecution were not satisfied that they would be able to prove that our client had known what he was involved in, so they offered no evidence and he rightly walked free.
