Reduction in sentence for drug offences. 12 months imprisonment downgraded to probation

29 March 2016

Fisher Dore Lawyers

Fisher Dore acted for Mr H, who pleaded guilty to 1 count of possession of MDMA, 3 counts of supplying a dangerous drug, and 1 count of possession of money suspected of being the proceeds of selling the drug. Mr H was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment to be served by way of an intensive correction order.

Fisher Dore helped Mr H seek leave to appeal against the sentence on the basis that a more appropriate sentence was probation or community service with no conviction recorded. The Court was persuaded that the sentence was manifestly excessive due to his prospect of rehabilitation and future employment. Leave to appeal was granted, and Mr H was given 2 years probation with reporting conditions. The convictions were not recorded.​
