Trafficking in a commercial quantity of a controlled drug
Our client was charged with trafficking in a commercial quantity of a controlled drug, namely 700 tablets of ecstasy.
A search warrant was executed on his property with the drugs being found, some tick lists and an amount of $10,000.00 cash.
Shortly after arrest, we secured our client counselling in a drug rehabilitation facility. Further, reference material was obtained from family and friends as well as urine analysis to demonstrate the rehabilitative process that the client had undertaken.
Ultimately, he received a term of imprisonment of two years, one day and six months suspended upon him entering into a good behaviour bond.
