Our experienced lawyers regularly attend court for clients charged with drug offences, including possessing prohibited drugs.
Possessing prohibited drugs in NSW can result in heavy penalties, including a criminal conviction recorded. However, an experienced drug lawyer may avoid this outcome by preparing a solid case and convincing the judge or magistrate to give a non-conviction sentence. In some cases, possessing a small number of drugs may now only result in an on-the-spot fine rather than a court appearance.
Our criminal law firm provides the following services;
Most minor drug offences will result in being handed a Section 10, which finds the person guilty but they receive no conviction. However, various factors affect this outcome. For example, previous criminal records and good character.
The importance of a good criminal lawyer in a drug-related case is high. Some drug offences can carry the maximum penalty of life imprisonment in serious cases.
If you are convicted of a drug offence, it can have a profound legal and practical adverse effect on your life. This may include limited employment opportunities and the inability to travel overseas.
If you intend to plead guilty to a drug offence, you may need to consider completing the Merit program.
The Magistrates Early Referral Into Treatment (MERIT) program is a voluntary, pre-plea program for adults in the Local Court who have issues related to alcohol and other drug use. This program provides access to a wide range of alcohol and other drug treatment services for 12 weeks while court matters are adjourned.
If you are charged with less serious drug offences under the Drugs Misuse and Trafficking Act, you may be eligible to complete the MERIT program. Once you have completed the MERIT program, the court will be provided with a report from the MERIT team. This includes information about their treatment and any recommendations for future treatment.
If a participant does not complete the MERIT program, there is no punitive action from the court. However, if you complete this program and receive a good treatment plan and report, the court will consider this completion positively in your favour in sentencing you.
Accordingly, it is highly recommended you successfully complete this program if you are eligible to do so.
