Liam Walker and Tunde Okewale secure not guilty verdicts in huge drug dealing trial

Following three weeks of legal arguments a jury at Exeter Crown Court were ordered, by HHJ Wassal, to return verdicts of not guilty in a prosecution that alleged the dealing of class A drugs, by 13 defendants, on a massive scale.


Liam Walker, leading, and Tunde Okewale represented JP, who was acquitted by jury upon the direction of the trial judge.


Liam and Tunde's client was arrested with drugs secreted inside of his body. He was also identified on CCTV and arrested after class A drugs were thrown from the property he was found in. Despite these evidential difficulties, including other defendants having pleading guilty to the same allegations, Liam and Tunde's client was acquitted after successful submissions to exclude crucial evidence against their client.


The Crown's case spanned a two year period and relied upon over 87,000 pages of evidence.
