Court Heard:  District Court at Brisbane

Maximum Penalty: 20 years imprisonment

Solicitor: Andrew Hanlon

Date: September 2017

Our clients were charged with a number of counts of supplying dangerous drugs (MDMA) as well as possessing dangerous drugs (MDMA) and possessing any thing used in connection with supplying dangerous drugs (mobile phones).

These charges stemmed from a police interception of our clients as they were preparing to attend a music festival and subsequent analysis of their mobile phones.

We encouraged both clients to undertake counselling in relation to illicit drug use and a program of drug testing prior to sentence.

Mr Hanlon appeared on behalf of both defendants at sentence in the District Court at Brisbane and made submissions highlighting our clients’ youth, lack of previous history and strong efforts towards rehabilitation.


This is a summary of an actual case. Details have been omitted to protect the privacy of our client. We select cases which are informative and no guarantee is provided that similar results are achievable in all cases. Every case is different and you should obtain legal advice specific to your matter and circumstances.

Despite the serious nature of the offences, the court ultimately accepted Mr Hanlon’s submissions and sentenced both defendants to a period of probation and, importantly for both young men, no convictions were recorded for the offences.
