Client charged with possession of 26.5 grams of Cannabis – No Conviction

Client charged with possession of 26.5 grams of Cannabis – No Conviction

On a Sunday evening, our client was pulled over by police in the Granville area, as they observed him to be driving in an erratic manner. When police approached the vehicle, they could smell a strong scent of cannabis. Our client admitted to having cannabis in his vehicle.  Police then searched his vehicle and found in the boot a brown paper bag containing 2 clear resealable bags. In the bags there was a total of 26.5 grams of cannabis also known as marijuana. 

Our client was charged with possession of a prohibited drug under section 10(1) of the Drug Misuse and Trafficking Act 198. This offence carries a maximum penalty of 2 years imprisonment.            

Fortunately, our client made the decision to contact Oxford Lawyers and their case was taken on by Mr Zemarai Khatiz, Principal Solicitor and Accredited Specialist in Criminal Law. Mr Khatiz represented our client at Parramatta Local Court and convinced the magistrate not to record a conviction taking into account the circumstances of our client and a conviction was not warranted.  

Even though our client had convictions for matters of different type in the past, the presiding magistrate was persuaded by Mr Khatiz’s arguments and decided to give our client a chance, by placing him on a Conditional Release Order with no conviction. Our client was extremely happy with this result as he would not have a drug conviction on his record. He was very grateful for the hard work that Oxford Lawyers put into his case.
