Insufficient evidence 'done them in', according to news coming from the UK.
According to the BBC reports, "Supermodel Kate Moss will not be charged over claims she took cocaine, the Crown Prosecution Service has said." Last September, pictures of Moss, 31, were widely circulated showing her snorting an unidentified substance at a London recording studio.
The BBC report further explains "the CPS said the film footage 'provides an absolutely clear indication that Ms. Moss was using controlled drugs and providing them to others'. Clearly what she was snorting was the problem for the prosecutors. The authorities had no evidence to the exact nature of what "it" was.
Because the CPS could not effectively build their case, it has all come to a complete halt. This was after a lengthy investigation period done by the CPS and the Metropolitan Police at the scene of the incident, a recording studio at Chiswick High Road.
As a result of all the press scrutiny and speculation, Moss suffered setbacks in her career by losing key contracts and other work. Her old beau, Johnny Depp, has made statements in the media to defend her, saying in effect, she was being made a scapegoat by the authorities unfairly.
