Drug Trafficking / Community Corrections Order (Jail Avoided)

Case: Jail avoided for trafficking Methamphetamine.

Our client’s house was raided and police found small quantities of drugs. Our client was cooperative and provided his phone PIN number which revealed one sms exchange of trafficking drugs.

Charges/ Ch1 (drug trafficking); Ch2, 4, 5, 6 (drug possession); Ch3 (drug use); Ch7, 8, 9 (possess imitation firearm); Ch10 (possess proceeds of crime); Ch11 (possess ammunition)

Result/ Ch1, 3, 10: withdrawn;  Ch2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11: Community Corrections Order with Conviction

Our lawyer negotiated with police to drop the most serious drug trafficking charges as the selling was not protracted and was limited to one sms. Our client would have certainly been jailed if trafficking was not dropped as he had a prior history for selling drugs.
