The Herald - - NEWS -

A SEC­OND brother who was sus­pected in the racist mur­der of Stephen Lawrence has been jailed for nine years for head­ing up a £3 mil­lion drugs plot.

Jamie Acourt, 42, from Eltham, south-east

Lon­don, ad­mit­ted the two-year con­spir­acy to sup­ply cannabis resin.

Acourt pre­vi­ously de­nied the con­spir­acy to sup­ply a class B drug but changed his plea fol­low­ing the end of the pros­e­cu­tion’s case.

His 43-year-old brother Neil has al­ready been jailed for more than six years for the crime.
