Our solicitor Courtney Ashton recently attended Perth Magistrates Court for a client who had been charged with driving with a prescribed illicit substance in their oral fluid or blood.
The client was concerned that they would lose their approved manager's licence if they were required to disclose the conviction to the regulatory body.
As a result of our submissions, the client was granted a spent conviction order. As a result of the spent conviction order being granted, the client is no longer required to disclose the conviction and is at no risk of losing her approved manager's licence.
