Supermodel Kate Moss will not face charges over allegations she took illegal drugs at a London recording studio last year, the Crown Prosecution Service said on Thursday June 15th, 2006.
Nine months after London's Daily Mirror published photos of Kate Moss allegedly using cocaine in a recording studio with then boyfriend Pete Doherty, Britain's Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) declared Thursday June 15th, 2006 that they are unable to pursue charges against the supermodel.
The Crown Prosecution Service said it had concluded that there was insufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of convicting Moss. Thus, the beauty was questioned by police but not arrested.
"The film footage provides an absolutely clear indication that Ms. Moss was using controlled drugs and providing them to others," said Rene Barclay, the CPS' London director of serious casework. "However, in the absence of any forensic evidence, or direct eye witness evidence about the substance in question, its precise nature could not be established. In fact "Ms. Moss declined to provide any explanation when interviewed, and the direct eye witnesses also declined to provide evidence."
