Notable Crime cases

Operation Mainpost - Bristol Crown Court (2019)

Daniel was a led junior in the prosecution of 5 defendants who had attempted to smuggle one of the largest ever shipments of cocaine into the UK (1.4 tonnes of the drug, worth £112 million). The defendants in the case purchased a catamaran which they used to sail to Venezuela to collect the drugs, before returning the UK with the aim of meeting a second, smaller boat in UK waters to transship the drugs and bring them ashore. The defendants’ plan was thwarted by a joint operation between the National Crime Agency and the UK Border Force. The trial Judge described the defendants’ plan as ‘criminality of truly staggering proportions’.

R v Obi Forgive - Northampton Crown Court (2019)

Daniel prosecuted a ‘stranger rape’ case in which the Crown’s case rested upon the inferences to be drawn from circumstantial evidence. The victim had no memory of the attack. The evidence included CCTV footage of the movements of the defendant and the victim on the night of the attack, which had been painstakingly pieced together by the investigation team.

Operation Evolution - Leicester Crown Court (2018-2019)

Daniel was a led junior in the prosecution of 23 defendants split into three trials. The case involved a series of violent confrontations between two groups of young men in Leicester City Centre which culminated in a mass confrontation at Bede Park, where the victim was chased down and stabbed multiple times by a group of at least 20 men. The case involved the identification of the culprits by a police officer who had spent many hundreds of hours viewing the CCTV footage.

R v Mark Law & Mason Casey - Leicester Crown Court (2017)

Daniel was a led junior in the prosecution of two young defendants who murdered a 45 year man that they met through a dating-focussed social networking app called ‘Badoo’. The defendants planned the murder, and used ‘Badoo’ to lure the victim to a meeting in an industrial estate car park where he was stabbed.
