Client Charged with Drug & Weapon Possession Escapes Conviction

Jenna Lewandoski represented a 22-year-old male at Manly Local Court in relation to 3 charges of Possess Prohibited Drug and Custody of a Knife in a Public Place.

After receiving the Police Facts Sheet from the client, Jenna carefully examined the charges with the client and the client indicated that some of the charges were incorrect as they identified different drugs for each sequence. We spoke with the Prosecutor and requested a further analysis of the drugs. After a few weeks, the tests came back identifying the correct substances. The Prosecutor amended the Police Facts and charges against our client and pleas of guilty were entered to the amended charges against our client.

The maximum penalty for each of these offences is 2 years imprisonment. Our client had indicated that drug use was an issue in the past and upon being charged, the Police referred our client to the MERIT (Magistrate’s Early Referral Into Treatment) program which provides the opportunity for adult defendants with substance abuse problems to work, on a voluntary basis, toward rehabilitation in conjunction with local area health services and professionals. Our client successfully completed the 12 week MERIT program.

Ms Lewandoski made persuasive submissions before the Magistrate on sentence and she was able to persuade the Magistrate to deal with all charges against our client without recording a conviction against our client by placing him on Good Behaviour Bonds for a period of 12 months.

This matter illustrates the importance of paying attention to detail, being attentive to clients and providing strong representation in court in order to achieve the best possible outcome.

After 5 years of constant dispute we contacted Go To Court Lawyers and after our first meeting we left feeling completely relieved. Our lawyer took care of all of the correspondents, completely relieving us of any stress associated with the case and we trusted him to take care of us and he did not disappoint. He managed to get our case settled out of court and we have returned to our normal lives after 5 years. My only regret is that I didn't contact them sooner.

Very positive. I was really impressed by how the different jurisdictions were explained to me. One was a Civil matter and the other, the Family Court. Until the explanation I was confused and that is what was causing me distress. I am relieved to understand the difference and that is because it was explained to me in a way that I could understand. Well Worth the time and money for that peace of mind. Impressed with the follow up too. Many thanks.

I've had a very unique case that required an expert advice in a very short notice as I was about to board a plane for an overseas offshore. I desperately discussed my case with Go to Court and surprisingly I've got a call from one of the greatest lawyer ever on Friday night saying he's happy to see me over weekend. Yeah, over the weekend!!! He sat with me on Saturday, reviewed my case and promised he will get back to me before my flights on Sunday. Long story short, not only I was pleased with their professional commitment, my case was resolved sooner than expected. Such a great team, such a great expertise. Highly recommended.
