Man walking past railings

Kane Sharpe, instructed and expertly assisted by Dharsh Lokaswaran at Bark & Co, achieves not guilty verdicts for his client after a 5-day trial at Southwark Crown Court for being concerned in the supply of heroin and crack cocaine.

Multiple officers gave evidence that a package containing a substantial quantity of individually wrapped deals of drugs were recovered from Kane’s client when searched. The co-defendant was a drug user witnessed by police making exchanges with other drug users nearby – the Crown’s case was this was a joint enterprise. Kane attacked the lack of body-worn video and forensics, as well as the overall inadequacy of the investigation and officers’ conduct. The jury acquitted his client unanimously.
