Not Guilty of Drug Charges due to Illegal Search


Sydney Criminal Lawyers had all drug supply and possession charges dismissed in Downing Centre Court by arguing that the police search of our client’s car was illegal.

The case serves as a reminder that police cannot conduct random or ‘arbitrary’ searches on persons or their cars.

Police must have a ‘reasonable suspicion’ that the drugs exist at that particular time.

That ‘suspicion’ must be ‘more than a mere possibility’ and based upon solid grounds.
