Client Avoids Conviction Despite Supplying 16 Ecstacy Tablets

CRIMINAL CASE

In Downing Centre District Court, our 24 year old client from Rydalmere was given a ‘section 10 bond’ despite pleading guilty to supplying 16 ecstacy tablets and possessing amphetamines.

This means that she avoids a criminal conviction altogether.

She is a Project Analyst with a Sydney-based telecommunications company that contracts to various government organisations.

She attended the Stereosonic Music Festival, Olympic Park where police allegedly saw her selling tablets to other party-goers.

Police approached and saw her holding a condom containing what appeared to be tablets and capsules.

They immediately cautioned her, seized the pills and placed her under arrest.

She then made a range of admissions and was charged with one count of ‘drug supply‘ and two counts of ‘drug possession’.

The ecstacy (or ‘MDMA’) tablets weighed a total of 5.44 grams. A capsule of amphetamines was also found.

The quantity of drugs made it a ‘strictly indictable case’ which means that it had to go to the District Court.

It was a strong case of ‘actual supply’.

However, Sydney Criminal Lawyers® persuaded the prosecution to significantly amend the ‘facts’ and to treat the matter as a ‘deemed supply’ only, which meant that it was less-serious.

Our client then pleaded guilty to one charge of ‘deemed supply‘.

She placed herself in the best possible position before her sentencing date by attending counselling and gathering character references.

A counselling letter was obtained and our defence team successfully persuaded the District Court Judge to keep her conviction-free.

This means that the incident is unlikely to affect our client’s current job or her future career prospects.
