Case Study: Non-Conviction for large drug possession charge

Posted by Justin Wong on 19 December 2018

An amazing outcome for one of Adam Faro’s clients yesterday at Waverley Local Court who received a non-conviction, Conditional Release Order for the possession of 7.5 grams of cocaine.

Ordinarily, anyone caught in possession of over 5 grams of cocaine is charged with supply, therefore 7.5 grams is considered a very large quantity for the charge of possession. Even with this aggravating factor, Mr Faro assisted the client in preparing a strong case and advanced compelling submissions on his client’s behalf. Thankfully, this client can now enjoy his Christmas without the worry and stress of a conviction against his name.

If you are caught over the Christmas break possessing drugs, contact Adam Faro or one of our criminal law specialists on (02) 90259888
