Diversion – Trafficking and Possessing Drugs

Trafficking DrugsThis is a case study on diversion for Trafficking and Possessing Drugs.

Our client had been charged with two counts of Trafficking Drugs, Possessing Drugs, and Proceeds of Crime offences. She was 18 and did not have a criminal record.

We provided legal representation at the Sunshine Children’s Court on the charges of:

Following discussions with the police, one of the trafficking charges was withdrawn and the prosecutor did not oppose diversion (which is offered to first time offenders and, if granted, they would be able to avoid a criminal record). The Magistrate agreed with the proposed diversion plan and granted the client diversion.

It was a great result. The diversion for Trafficking and Possessing Drugs would mean that the client will avoid a criminal record which would have affected her ability to find work.
