Police were patrolling in the early morning hours and saw our client walking. He went into his unit block. Police were suspicious. They parked the police car and entered the unit block, spoke with our client and searched the area – finding some prohibited drugs. Due to the quantity found, the client was charged with drug supply or deemed supply.
The client was committed to stand trial. The client had a history of personal drug use and subsequently underwent residential drug rehabilitation.
We entered into last minute discussions with the Crown, who accepted our careful analysis of the evidence and withdrew the supply charges upon the client pleading guilty to drug possession. He was placed on concurrent section 9 Good Behaviour Bonds.
