A record of a drug offence can have a significant impact on your future, even if it is a minor offence. If a conviction is recorded it will go on your criminal history and can seriously affect your future employment. A recorded conviction can also prevent you from travelling to certain countries with strict regulations.
Where there are significant consequences, it is possible to argue that there should be no conviction recorded even if you are convicted of a drug offence. We have assisted people who are charged with a whole range of drug offences from minor possession, to trafficking.
Depending on the person’s history and the type of offence we have regularly been able to successfully argue that our clients should not have a conviction recorded for these types of offences.
