Police had stopped our client for a random roadside breath test. After returning a negative result to the breath test, police then subjected our client to an oral fluid test which produced a positive detection for Cocaine. Our client was then placed under arrest and escorted to the police station for further oral fluid testing and forensic analysis. Ultimately, these further tests returned a certified positive detection for Cocaine.

Our client was subsequently charged with driving a motor vehicle with illicit drug present in oral fluid under section 111(1)(a) of the Road Transport Act 2013. The maximum penalty for this as a first offence is a fine and an automatic license disqualification for 6 months.

Our client contacted Oxford Lawyers and wisely sought the assistance of Principal Solicitor and Accredited Criminal Law Specialist, Mr Zemarai Khatiz. Mr Khatiz appeared at Waverly Local Court and made powerful submissions on behalf of our client, in relation to the need for his licence.

The Magistrate accepted Mr Khatiz’s submissions and did not record a Conviction. This meant  that our client was able to continue driving.
