Bankstown Police Area Command started to investigate into a drug supply syndicate using a specific mobile phone number.
During the investigation the police observed the distribution of drugs using a taxi.
Our client was accused to taking up a role with a criminal group.
As part of his alleged role in the criminal group, he used a taxi to supply drugs, mainly cocaine, multiple times.
Our client was charged with the following:
- Supply of Prohibited Drugs on an ongoing basis under Section 25A(1) of the Drug Misuse and Trafficking Act 1985. This offence carries a maximum penalty of 20 years imprisonment and a fine of $385,000.
- Participation in a criminal group under Section 93T(1) of the Crimes Act 1900. This offence carries a maximum penalty of 5 years imprisonment.
As a result of our client’s alleged ties to the criminal group and the accused supply of a significant amount of cocaine, our client was scared he would be refused bail.
Thankfully, Our client contacted Oxford Lawyers. Criminal Defence Solicitor, Mr Asem Taleb took the case and immediately applied for bail at the Supreme Court of NSW.
Mr Taleb presented strong submissions and proposed bail conditions that allowed the Judge to determine that our client was not a risk to the community and was granted bail.
Our client was beyond grateful to receive bail as he was able to return home to his children and wife, as well as getting his freedom back.
