Police pulled over our client’s car and located just over 2 kilograms of cannabis. Our client was charged with drug supply. His phone was examined and a text message confirmed his involvement in the supply chain. Police also found thousands of dollars in cash. He was charged with Dealing with the Proceeds of Crime.
Initially he was bail refused, however a subsequent bail application was successful and the client was released from custody.
The client pleaded guilty to Knowingly Take Part in the Supply of a Prohibited Drug and Deal with Proceeds of Crime. He had no prior criminal record. His personal drug habit was taken into account – he was not deriving any profit from his involvement and only took part to be given some cannabis to feed his habit. The time that he spent in prison bail refused was taken into account. He was placed on lengthy section 9 Good Behaviour Bonds. A great result.
