Shoedunnit! Lawyer jailed for smuggling drugs and phones into jail in his footwear

Ritesh Brahmbhatt, 31, was caught by sniffer dogs as he tried to sneak the contraband to inmates to be sold on the black market

A crooked lawyer who smuggled drugs into a jail by hiding them in a pair of huge shoes has been booted into prison.

Ritesh Brahmbhatt, 31, was caught by sniffer dogs as he tried to sneak the contraband to inmates to be sold on the black market.

The shamed solicitor had crammed most of the stash in size 12 slip-ons that were three sizes too big for him.

He was found at Pentonville jail in North London with 80g of cannabis, electric scales, illegal stimulant meow-meow and mobile phones.

Jailing him for six years, Judge Deva Pillay told him at Blackfriars crown court in South London: “You are a devious, conniving and unprincipled individual who would stop at nothing nor allow anyone to get in the way in furthering your selfish and at times undoubtedly criminal ambitions.”

Brahmbhatt, of Ilford, East London, who worked for Mordi & Co in Holloway, North London, has been suspended.

He admitted two conspiracies dating to 2009 and a further charge of sneaking a phone into Winchester jail, Hants.

Four accomplices, including two prisoners, were jailed for a total of 18 years.
