Drug Case Diversion Success for Berkeley Sahota

Further cementing our reputation for assisting our clients to avoid criminal prosecution, Berkeley Sahota has achieved another notable success.

After discovering that our client was importing large quantities of GBL (also related to the substance GHB) to the UK, police found large quantities of the drug at his home. After lengthy and protracted negotiations with the police, led by Roger Sahota, a decision was taken not to prosecute our client, despite the fact that the arrest originally concerned allegations of conspiracy to import the drug.

GHB and GBL are both Class C drugs. GBL is widely available for legitimate industrial use. Supplying orpossessing the substance is a criminal offences knowing or believing it will be swallowed and ingested. Possession could result in a two year prison sentence. Supply carries a maximum sentence of 14 years in jail.
