Further Man Charged In Leeds Jury Tampering Investigation.

Monday, April 24, 2017

A man is due to appear in court charged in connection with an investigation into jury tampering during a trial at Leeds Crown Court. 

Jamie Lawson, aged 28, of Bayswater Grove, Harehills, is due to appear at Leeds Magistrates Court on May 24 charged with conspiracy to pervert the course of justice. 

He was arrested on Thursday last week by officers from the Yorkshire and Humber Regional Organised Crime Unit, supported by West Yorkshire Police Protective Services Operations and Leeds District Serious Organised Crime Unit. 

Jonaade Hussain, aged 27, of Trentham Grove Beeston, and a 15-year-old girl appeared at Leeds Magistrates Court on Saturday charged with the same offence. The case was adjourned and Hussain was remanded in custody and the girl was given conditional bail until both appear at Leeds Crown Court on May 22.

The investigation relates to a trial at Leeds Crown Court which concluded in February this year with four men being jailed for a total of 37 years for offences including manslaughter and conspiracy to commit fraud in relation to a 'cash for crash' incident in Beeston in September 2014 which caused the death of 88-year-old Betty Laird.
