All Clients who Pleaded Guilty to Drug Possession Avoid Criminal Records


Print

In Burwood Local Court, each of our Senior Lawyers represented 3 clients who were caught possessing drugs at the Stereosonic Music Festival.

Our clients were from various social, economic and cultural backgrounds and worked in a range of fields – from retail, to accountant, to company executive, to business owner.

Three of our clients were also students.

Most were caught for possessing MDMA tablets, also known as ‘ecstacy’ – ranging from 2 to 9 pills. One of our clients had two ‘drug possession’ charges against him for possessing 7 ecstacy tablets and just over 1 gram of cocaine.

All of our clients’ cases were thoroughly prepared and persuasively presented in court.

This resulted in the Magistrate allowing all of them to avoid criminal records by granting them ‘Section 10s’.

Section 10 means that, even though a person is guilty, a criminal conviction is not recorded against their name.

Our clients are free to get on with their lives without the burden of a criminal record.
