‘Section 10’ for 5 Ecstacy Tablets Despite Previous Conviction


Sydney Criminal Lawyers convinced the Presiding Magistrate in Downing Centre Local Court not to record a conviction against a 33 year old St Leonards man who pleaded ‘guilty’ to possessing 5 ecstacy pills, despite him already having a ‘Section 10’ in 2004 and a criminal conviction in 2006.

Our client attended counselling, wrote a ‘letter of apology’ and obtained references in the lead-up to his case, and submissions were made to the Magistrate about the effect of a ‘drug conviction’ on his job prospects.
