We acted on the client’s behalf at the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court.
An application for a diversion was made to the police along with a report from his psychologist evidencing his sustained rehabilitation. Because of our client’s age, lack of prior history, cooperation with police, and his endeavours to address his drug use, the police officer was prepared to recommend diversion.
