The defendant, a man of previous good character was found NOT GUILTY after a trial. This was a complex and sophisticated case involving detailed and extensive analysis of fingerprint evidence and surveillance.
The defendant was arrested following the seizure of more than £600,000 of heroin in Bradford. Forensic examination of the packaging revealed thumb and fingerprint marks belonging to the defendant led to his arrest from London where he lived. The prosecution described his defence as ‘fanciful’ but the jury did not agree. They returned an unanimous verdict of not guilty.
NOT GUILTY verdict.
