Expert Drug Offences Solicitors in Melbourne
An expert criminal defence lawyer can aid your defence for drug offences by showing that not all of the necessary elements of the case are provable. In most circumstances, the prosecution will need to prove that the drugs were in your possession.
It is important that, if there is any doubt about your knowledge of or control over the drugs, your solicitor can help you by presenting this evidence to the court.
In addition, if you plead guilty, or are convicted at trial, a defence lawyer can present information about mitigating circumstances or personal factors around the offending. They can also reduce the severity of the sentence by presenting character witnesses or references.
