Jamie Acourt Imprisoned: Stephen Lawrence Suspects Nine Years for Drug Use - Sky News

A man suspected of the racist murder of Stephen Lawrence has been detained for nine years for drug-related conspiracy.

42-year-old Jamie Acourt pleaded guilty to the conspiracy to deliver cannabis resin in northeast England.

It is the last conviction in an investigation by the Political Command of the Metropolitan Police, in which seven men were charged with a complex and highly organized drug network.

Acourt previously denied the conspiracy to deliver a Class B drug between January 2014 and February 2016, but changed his request when the prosecutor's office opened its case.
