Drug Offences Melbourne
The client was charged with possession of a number of high end party drugs – ecstasy, ketamine, and cocaine. He also had a prior history of possession and trafficking.
The client was out in the city with some friends when he was stopped and searched by police due to his suspicious behaviour. The drugs were found concealed in his clothing and he made full admissions to police.
At the first consultation with our solicitor, the client was referred to a drug and alcohol counsellor and directed to undergo regular urine screens.
At the court hearing a plea of a guilty was entered. The drug and alcohol counsellor was called to give evidence and the clean urine screens were tendered. The Magistrate adjourned the proceedings to allow for the client to continue his counselling sessions.
At the return date the Magistrate was provided with an update on the client’s counselling sessions and more clean urine screens were tendered. The client was sentenced to an $850 fine and, most importantly, avoided a conviction.
