Cerys Sayer, instructed by Aika Stephenson, Legal Director of Just for Kids Law, conducted a number of hearings in a county lines drugs supply case, representing a teenager who was vulnerable and had been exploited.
The Defence legal team were successful in arguing that, despite the new authority of R v Brecani, the particular facts of this case meant that it was not in the public interest for the prosecution to proceed.  Ultimately, no evidence was offered against their client.
Head of Chambers, Richard Barton, says, ‘This is a fine example of Cerys, and those instructing her, going the extra mile in order to ensure justice for a client in very clear need of expert assistance’.
