Possession of drugs and 30k cash whilst on parole from Supreme Court for drug offences

Alan Phillips was engaged to act on behalf of a client who was charged with numerous serious drug offences including possession of over thirty thousand dollars in cash. Alan worked efficiently by scheduling teleconferences with our client at Woodford Correctional Centre to obtain instructions and provide legal advice.  A submission was drafted and sent to police for consideration.  As a result of the submission, one charge was discontinued, and our client pleaded guilty to the remaining offences.  Half the cash was returned to our client, and police accepted the drugs were possessed for personal use, despite the quantity being over 2 grams of a schedule one drug.

He was sentenced to a conucurrent 21 months imprisonment with his existing 2.5 year sentence from the Supreme Court, with a parole eligibility date set shortly after his sentence. He was able to apply for parole immediately.

Alan Phillips' knowledge and expertise relating to the criminal justice system and particularly drug offences, allowed the matters to be dealt with promptly in the Magistrates Court. Contact our office on 07 3180 0158 or 0403 846 238 if you require assistance.
