Trafficking Large Commercial Quantity Of Drug Of Dependence / Bail Granted

Case: Bail granted for Middle Aged man charged with trafficking large commercial quantity of drugs & firearms.

Our client’s house was raided and large commercial quantity of drugs was allegedly found along with two loaded hand guns and a shotgun. This quantity makes bail unlikely given the almost certain prospects of a term of imprisonment if found guilty. Client had to show exceptional circumstances why bail should be granted.

Charges/ Ch1 (trafficking of a large commercial quantity of methylamphetamine); Ch2 (trafficking of a large commercial quantity of heroin); Ch3 (trafficking of a large commercial quantity of 1,4B); Ch4 (Prohibited person possess firearm x3); Ch5 (trafficking firearms); Ch6 (Knowingly deal with proceeds of crime being an unknown amount of cash)

Result/ Bail Granted – exceptional circumstances found

Our lawyer advised client that his prospects of a successful bail application would depend on the risk of further offending being mitigated along with addressing possible flight risks due to extraneous identity documents also being located at the residence of our client. Our client allowed our office to make a referral to our list of preferred treatment providers which included a luxurious private residential rehabilitation facility. Kings Counsel was engaged to appear on behalf of our client in a well prepared bail application and was able to succesfully convince a Magistrate that exceptional circumstances had been met & that the unacceptable risk which our client posed could be ameliorated by the conditions proposed by our legal team.
