Tom Edwards secures not guilty verdict in cocaine conspiracy trial

15/12/2020

Tom acted for a confessed cannabis dealer who was found to have an ounce of cocaine in his bedroom along with numerous incriminating messages on his telephone which the Crown said related to cocaine. The case involved extensive cross-examination of the police drugs expert on the content of the text messages as well as a successful application to adduce a hearsay confession of a co-accused who had pleaded guilty.
