What is a conspiracy to supply Class A drugs?
In general terms a ‘conspiracy’ is an agreement between two or more people to commit a criminal offence.
A conspiracy to supply Class A drugs is when people make an agreement to sell, transfer, pass or distribute drugs to other people. It does not matter whether the supply actually takes place or whether there has been any kind of financial gain.
Actions that may be viewed as ‘conspiracy’ include:
- Discussing drug deals with other people, including exchanging text messages
- Travelling to collect deliveries of drugs or acting as a courier
- Being a go-between or ‘middle man’ for drug transactions
- Allowing premises to be used for the supply of drugs
What are Class A drugs?
In the UK, illegal or controlled drugs are sorted into three categories or ‘classes’ – A, B and C. The Government classifies drugs depending on the harm they can potentially cause individuals and society as a whole, with Class A being the most serious category.
Examples of Class A drugs include:
- Crack cocaine
- Magic mushrooms
- Crystal meth/methamphetamine
Funding your conspiracy to supply Class A drugs case
Police station representation
If you or someone you know has been arrested for conspiracy to supply drugs or invited to a voluntary interview under caution, you are entitled to free legal advice at the police station or place of detention.
There will be a duty solicitor there who can assist or you can choose your own solicitor – so, ask to call ABR Solicitors as soon as possible and we can travel to your side to advise and represent you.
It is advisable that you do not answer any questions about an alleged offence until you have received legal advice because anything you say could be used as evidence later on.
As well as police investigations and Crown Prosecution Service prosecutions, we have experience representing clients targeted by a wide range of authorities, such as the National Crime Agency (NCA).
If you are released from police custody on bail or under investigation, it can be valuable to have a lawyer on your side to get advice about what happens next and to help you take steps to protect yourself and lower the risk of being charged.
For more information about how we can help during criminal investigations, visit our Released Under Investigation page.
Proceedings in the Magistrates’ Court or Crown Court can be privately funded or funded using Legal Aid. We are happy to work with you to find the best way forward.
