Alexandra’s client was accused of being part of a group that attempted to raid a cannabis factory, armed with a loaded gun.  He was charged with attempted aggravated burglary, and possession of a firearm and ammunition with intent to endanger life.

The Crown’s case relied on cell site evidence, DNA found on the gun, CCTV of the raid, taxis taken to and from the area, and evidence taken from the defendant’s handset.

Alexandra was instructed and assisted by Sophie Clarke of Carson Kaye Solicitors. 

Their client was unanimously acquitted of all counts.
