The defendant and his daughter were party to a conspiracy to supply cannabis and to transfer criminal property knowing that it represented in whole or in part the proceeds of criminal conduct. Will was able to successfully argue that there was a sufficiency of exceptional circumstances present in his client’s case to permit the court to consider suspending any term of imprisonment imposed. The court agreed and the term of imprisonment imposed was suspended for two years.

Will represented Michael Dunn and was instructed privately by Kenyon McAteer Solicitors.
