GT was charged with drug trafficking had an amount of methylamphetamines together at his home with other indicia including money, scale and other notes. Unfortunately he had received previously a suspended sentence for serious criminal trespass. He had been placed on that suspended sentence bond which he broke by committing these trafficking offences.
What occurred after we obtained a large number of references and a psychological report, submissions were made about his rehabilitation attempts and the fact that he had been able to provide clean urine samples for a large number of months. The Court found good reason to excuse the breach of the bond but extended the bond for a further 6 months. In respect to the trafficking he was sentenced to 3 years and 13 days with a non-parole period of 17 months which was then suspended upon him entering into a bond to be on good behaviour for a period of 3 years, to be under supervision for 18 months and to complete 100 hours of community work. This was an excellent result bearing in mind the fact he had been on a suspended sentence at the time of committing this offence.
