    /A learner/

    I’d say it this way below

    There was no evidence against them so that they were sent home.
    What they did last summer, little I knew. (I knew nothing about it)

    "There being no evidence against them. they were sent home"

    I think this is a problem of punctuation:

    "There being no evidence against them, they were sent home."

    "little i knew about what they did last summer"

    It’s difficult to correct this without a context. It could be:

    "I knew little about what they did last summer" (= I don’t have much information about their activities last summer)
