Money Laundering Success for Lewis Nedas Law client and Miles Herman

money launderingMiles Herman, a Solicitor Advocate and director of the practice, represented the Defendant charged with laundering monies of over £300,000.

Although a Guilty plea was tendered, it was on the basis that the Defendant was simply acting as a courier for others.  The Crown Prosecution Service rejected that basis stating that they believed the Defendant to be involved in organised crime.  As a result, a contested Newton Hearing took place before the Recorder of Southwark and the court following submissions made by Miles agreed with the Defence’s submissions and imposed on  the Defendant  a suspended sentence of imprisonment on that basis.  The client was clearly delighted as he faced a significant prison sentence if the court had found in the Prosecution’s favour.
