Client recieves community Release order without conviction after admitting to carrying MDMA and GHB

Facts: Possession of Prohibited Drugs

Yin entered a Police station in Sydney’s inner-city to report that he had been mugged. While in discussion, he produced a large, clear plastic bag from the back of his pockets which had a small eye-drop style bottle. The police then asked questions about it where he admitted to carrying MDMA and GHB.

Police then seize the drugs from Yin and caution him in relation to the offence. Yin was then given a Field Court Attendance Notice to attend the Downing Centre Local Court in Sydney’s CBD.

Outcome: Community Release Order without conviction

O’Brien Criminal and Civil Solicitors successfully represented YM, who entered a plea of guilty to two counts of possession of a prohibited drug.

His Honour took into account a number of considerations when determining the appropriate penalty for YM. These included:

  • the small quantity of the drug,
  • early guilty plea,
  • being a person of prior good character,
  • and having no previous convictions.

His Honour accepted it was appropriate to sentence YM to a Community Release Order (without conviction) for a period of 18 months.
