Our client was a 30 year old man who was caught with 2 ounces of high grade methamphetamine in his car.
Adam of LY Lawyers applied for and was granted bail for our client at Liverpool Local court, when the matter first came to court.
He had a minor criminal record. He was drug dependant at the time of the offence, however had successfully completed various rehabilitation programs whilst on bail. He had also provided evidence was rehabilitation of his gambling addiction.
His wife had just given birth to his first child, and had a strong subjective case in arguing for a sentence other than full time imprisonment.
The case appeared before Judge Baly at Parramatta District Court in early November 2014, where, represented by LY Lawyers and our Barrister, Judge Baly accepted our submission that our client had excellent prospects of rehabilitation and could be made to serve his sentence of imprisonment in the community.
The judge ordered an assessment for an Intensive Corrections order, which on the next occasion at court in early December 2014, was ordered.
An exceptional result for our client.
