Mark Wyeth QC Secures Acquittal on 'Europe’s Biggest Cannabis Production Case'

Mark Wyeth QC recently secured the acquittal of a 42-year-old Company Secretary accused of conspiracy relating to the industrial production of cannabis at 56 'farms' across the UK.

The trial at the Central Criminal Court lasted two months. The man was one of only two defendants out of an original 16 defendants to be found not guilty by juries over the course of two related trials.

The conspiracy was described by the trial Judge when sentencing the previously co-accused as the 'biggest in Europe' of its type, with the criminal gang involved making millions of pounds from their illegal trade and destroying many residential properties in the process.
