R v Katie Baldwin

Jane Dagnall defended a mother of three who ran a drugs phone line for her partner while he was in prison.

Katie Baldwin was found to have played a ‘leading role’ supplying dealers in inner-city Manchester. She was arrested during a string of raids after an undercover detective bought drugs using her phone line.

At Manchester Crown Court, Baldwin admitted being concerned in the supply of class A drugs and possession of criminal property.

The case was reported in the Sun, the Mirror, the Mail and the Manchester Evening News, and Ms Dagnall’s mitigating remarks are quoted extensively.
