Client Avoids Criminal Conviction after Drug Supply Charges Reduced to Drug Possession

RELATED TO: Section 10 Dismissal, Drug Supply, Drug Possession, Drug Offences, Penalties for Criminal Offences, NSW Penalties for Criminal Offences
CRIMINAL CASE

Our 21 year old client was charged with drug supply after police observed him smoking crystal methylamphetamine (‘ice’) through a glass pipe in the driver seat of his car.

Police searched the car and located more ‘ice’ in a small resealable bag, 6 tablets of MDMA (‘ecstacy’), drug paraphernalia and a quantity of cash.

They charged him with drug supply due to the quantity of drugs found – this charge is also known as ‘deemed drug supply’.

Once again, our defence team wrote a detailed letter to police requesting withdrawal of the drug supply charges on the basis that our client pleads guilty to the less-serious charge of ‘drug possession‘.

The request was successful and our client then pleaded guilty to drug possession.

Our client was represented in court by our senior lawyers who persuaded the Magistrate in Downing Centre Local Court to award our client a ‘section 10’ which means that he avoids a criminal conviction altogether.
