Supplying a Drug That Causes Death

Supplying a Drug that Causes Death is an offence under Section 25C of the Crimes Act 1900 which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.

To establish the offence, the prosecution must prove beyond reasonable doubt that:

  1. You supplied a prohibited drug to another person
  2. You did so for a financial or material advantage
  3. Another person administered the drug to themselves
  4. The drug caused or substantially caused another person’s death, and
  5. You knew, or ought reasonably have known, that supplying the drug would expose another person to the significant risk of death

A ‘prohibited drug’ includes, but is not limited to:

  1. Heroin
  2. ‘Ice’ (or crystal methamphetamine)
  3. Cocaine, and
  4. ‘Ecstacy’ (or MDMA)

You are not guilty if you were legally authorised to supply the drug.
