Man accused of trafficking in SP was acquitted with the help of body cameras

Laydison de Souza Silva, accused of drug trafficking, was acquitted by the Court of Justice of the State of São Paulo due to lack of conclusive evidence.

The decision, released in the records on May 3, 2024, was based on the inconsistency between the police officers' version and the body camera images.

The accused was charged in Santos (SP) for possessing 166 portions of crack, 119 portions of marijuana, 726 portions of cocaine and 10 tubes of perfume inhalants, in addition to R$537.00 in cash, two radio transmitters and a cell phone.

The complaint was formalized on December 15, 2023, and Laydison was regularly summoned to respond to the accusations.

During the investigation of the case, witnesses were heard and expert examinations were carried out, including a chemical-toxicological examination report that confirmed the materiality of the drugs.

However, the defense presented images from the police officers' body cameras, which did not corroborate the version presented by the authorities about the arrest and seizure of the drugs.

Given the contradictions, the judge dismissed the state's punitive claim as unfounded and acquitted Laydison based on article 386, item VII, of the Code of Criminal Procedure, which provides for acquittal when there is insufficient evidence for conviction.

The judge also ordered the issuance of a release permit and the return of the seized amount to the accused.
