      No Conviction for Over 10 LSD Tabs

      Astor Legal recently appeared at Liverpool Local Court in relation to serious drug charges.

      Our client was a 19-year-old university student studying a Bachelor of Psychology and Bachelor of Business.

      At the time he was working as an apprentice to earn some money and assist his family with their expenses. On the day of the incident he was sitting in his work ute with a colleague.

      Police stopped the vehicle and conducted a search. They found over to tans of LSD on him.

      He came to our firm distressed at the prospect of a drug conviction on his record. This would have affected his ability to be registered as a psychologist and his plans to travel overseas.

      We immediately went to work preparing the case.

      First we arranged for the client to attend the SMART Recovery Program.This is a drug education program that aims to develop strategies to assist people to eliminate drug use.

      Next we obtained references from his employer and parents setting out his remorse and the steps he had taken to ensure he did not reoffend. We also obtained evidence of his enrolment in university and the effect a conviction would have on him.

      At Court we made detailed submissions highlighting these factors. Despite the significant quantity of drugs, the Magistrate was persuaded to sentence our client to a conditional release order without conviction.

      Our client and his family were overjoyed with the result.
