Jamie Acourt: Suspect in racist murder of Stephen Lawrence admits role in £ 4m drugs plot - Sky News

A man who was a suspect in the racist murder of Stephen Lawrence has admitted being a kingpin in a £ 4m drugs plot.

Jamie Acourt pleaded guilty at Kingston Crown Court over the two-year conspiracy to sell cannabis resin.

The 42-year-old, from Eltham in southeast London, had initially denied the charges – but he had changed his plea after the prosecution opened the case against him.

His brother Neil has already been jailed for more than six years over the scheme.
