You can contact the team at Repute Law to discuss your case with an experienced Drug Possession Lawyer.

The penalty available depends on the charge and the quantity of drugs involved. In some cases, an on-the-spot fine may be issued, or a caution may be given. A Senior Drug Lawyer from Repute Law can advise you of your options and your best way forward.

A fine is a monetary penalty and is noted in Acts as a number of penalty units. The value of one penalty unit is prescribed in the S 17 Crimes (Sentencing Procedure) Act. Currently, one penalty unit is equal to $110 as of February 2023.

The penalty for drug supply depends on the type and quantity of drugs and your personal circumstances and history. A term of imprisonment will always be considered, so it is important to present your best case with a Senior lawyer from Repute Law.

Those accused of drug manufacturing face imprisonment sentences of two years to life if a large commercial quantity is involved and a child is exposed in the manufacture. f Fines can also be significant up to $660,000 in the most serious cases.

If dealt with in the Local Court, maximum penalties are a term of imprisonment of up to 2 years and/or a $5,500 fine for a small quantity or 2 years imprisonment and/or an $11,000 fine if greater than the small quantity but less than the commercial quantity.

The prosecution must prove beyond reasonable doubt the accused had an illegal drug in their ‘custody’ or ‘control’ and that the person knew that they had custody or control of a prohibited drug.. Having an experienced and senior robust Drug Defence Lawyer by your side can help you clearly state your case in Court.

Drug possession pleas that result in a conviction may lead to higher fines or stricter sentencing. It may also result in a permanent criminal record that carries with you for the rest of your life.

The Court will hear an outline of the case against you and your lawyer will then address the Court on your offending, your personal circumstances and details of your offending. The Court is obliged to give up to a 25% discount on sentence for a plea of guilty and this will be included in submissions in matters of mitigation to achieve the best possible outcome.
