Possession of Cannabis, Large Quantity for Personal Use, Magistrates’ Court

Our client was found to be in possession of 783g of cannabis. He was initially charged with trafficking due to the large amount that was located.

Kristina Kothrakis represented our client at the Kilmore Magistrates’ Court.

After negotiations with the prosecution, the charge of trafficking was withdrawn, and a plea was entered in relation to the possession. The client had a prior conviction for trafficking cannabis.

With this charge, due to the amount that was located, the Court still need to be satisfied that the possession was not for the purpose of trafficking. This was done successfully, and the Magistrate placed the client on a 6 month Community Based Order.
