Bail for serious drug offences and armed robbery

Updated: Sep 7, 2023

On the 25th of May 2021, Alan Phillips of our office instructed Christopher Wilson of counsel before the Brisbane Supreme Court on behalf of a 23-year-old female who was charged with a total of 24 offences. These charges were serious drug, armed robbery, bail, traffic, and other related offences. Our client had an extensive criminal history and after hearing Mr Wilson’s lengthy submissions, bail was granted on various strict conditions including the use of a tracking device and attending a drug rehabilitation centre.

In early July 2022, the defendant was sentenced in the Brisbane Supreme Court for multiple serious drug and armed robbery offences. Prior to being granted bail in 2021, she served approximately one month in custody. She committed the serious drug offences whilst on bail for armed robbery and was subject to a suspended sentence at the time of committing these offences. With the assistance of our office, she was sentenced to a 2-year suspended sentence and 2 year’s probation. This was a great result as the maximum sentence for armed robbery is life imprisonment.
