No Conviction for Man Charged with Supplying Ecstacy Tablets

RELATED TO: Drug Supply, Deemed Supply, Drug Offences
CRIMINAL CASE

The Magistrate in Downing Centre Local Court was persuaded to discharge our 24 year old client without recording a criminal conviction against him despite being found in possession of 8 tablets of MDMA (‘ecstacy’).

Police approached our client in a Sydney Night Club after receiving information that he was selling ‘ecstacy’ tablets to patrons.

They asked whether he was in possession of drugs and he immediately produced a small resealable plastic bag containing 8 pills.

He was arrested and charged with ‘drug supply’ and ‘drug possession’.

The ‘drug supply’ charge was based on the law about ‘deemed supply’ – which says that a person can be charged with drug supply simply because they possess more than the ‘trafficable quantity’ of drugs eg more than 0.75 grams of ecstacy.

Our defence team wrote a detailed letter to Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (‘DPP’) which resulted in the ‘supply’ charge being withdrawn.

Our client then pleaded guilty to ‘possession‘ and our Mr Nedim convinced the Magistrate to allow him to remain ‘conviction-free’ on the basis that a criminal conviction could have impacted upon his ability to become an accountant after completing his university studies.
