Success for Llewellyn Culver-Evans in money laundering trial
Llewellyn Culver-Evans, defending, achieved success in a recent money laundering trial before the Central Criminal Court sitting at Aldersgate House.
The Prosecution indicted EC, a young teacher of good character, with two counts of money laundering in relation to a £20,000 fraud. The case concerned a bank account in the defendant’s name, which was used to move the stolen money through.
Following the close of the Prosecution case, Llewellyn made detailed written and oral submissions, inviting the Judge to stop the case, on the basis that there was no evidence upon which a jury could convict.
The Judge agreed, ruling that the prosecution case was so weak that no jury could convict the defendant. The Judge directed the jury to return a not guilty verdict on both counts.
The defendant retains their good character. Llewellyn was instructed by Tank Jowett Solicitors
