R v TN – 2017

15 May 2017

Edward Duncan Smith was instructed in this case where there were allegations of Supplying Class A drugs after the defendants were found in a car with drug wraps and apparently “dirty” phones.  The Crown offered no evidence at a retrial after cross-examination in the first trial exposed serious flaws in the police investigation, including the failure of the drugs “expert” to correctly distinguish between sent and received text messages found on the phones.
