Client Retains Liberty | Kingston upon Thames Crown Court | Kangs Criminal Defence Solicitors

Share

Kangs Solicitors recently successfully represented a client charged with transferring criminal property.

Amandeep Murria of Kangs Solicitors reports on the circumstances.

The Circumstances | Money Laundering | Kangs Criminal Defence Solicitors

After travelling from the West Midlands to a residential address in London, our client was apprehended by Police Officers who conducted a search of his vehicle under s.289 Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 which revealed a substantial amount of cash and two very sophisticated PGP handsets.

Also discovered was a £5 note, known by the police to be commonly used as a form of receipt for items and cash received in money laundering offences.

How We Assisted Our Client | Kangs Criminal Defence Team

In preparation of our client’s defence, the Kangs criminal defence team:

  • examined in detail the material relied upon by the Prosecution
  • attended our client and discussed the matter at length with him
  • considered our client’s instructions, and explained to him the effect of the evidence available to the Prosecution
  • instructed suitably experienced counsel on his behalf namely Mathew Sherratt QC

Having considered our advice and his position, our client appreciated that he had no realistic alternative other than to enter a guilty plea to enable us to seek to achieve the best outcome which could be achieved for him.

Accordingly, we were then able to undertake detailed negotiations with the Prosecution, which were concluded successfully.

The Successful Outcome | Kangs Criminal Fraud Solicitors

As the result of the negotiations conducted on behalf of our client, he was sentenced to:

  • a suspended prison sentence, thereby enabling him to retain his liberty
  • an unpaid work requirement and
  • make a payment towards the Prosecution costs.

Our client was overjoyed with the outcome which enabled him to retain his liberty, return to his family and to his proper employment.
