In 2017 our client was charged with trafficking in the dangerous drug methylamphetamine for a period of twelve months. In 2018 the Department of Public Prosecutions later provided a draft schedule of facts which provided for a significantly larger trafficking period of twenty-two months.
After reviewing substantial telephone intercept material in the brief of evidence, Nicholas Crawford made a submission to the Department of Public Prosecutions to reduce the trafficking period back to twelve months to reflect the contents of the brief of evidence.
This submission was accepted and our client entered a plea of guilty to trafficking in dangerous drugs for a one-year period, possessing dangerous drugs and possessing a thing used in connection with trafficking in a dangerous drug.
Nicholas Crawford appeared instructing Douglas Wilson of Counsel for the Supreme Court sentence. Our client was sentenced to three years’ probation for possessing dangerous drugs and five years’ imprisonment which was wholly suspended for a period of five years for trafficking in dangerous drugs.
