Our client was charged with supply after being caught with 20 pills going to a festival in Homebush. The police rejected our offer for our client to plead guilty to possession, which was not charged. At the hearing, we satisfied the Magistrate that our client was not carrying the pills with the intention of supplying them to others; rather they were for his personal use. The Magistrate accepted our client’s evidence and found him not guilty of supply. As the police had not charged him with the backup offence of possession, of which he would surely be convicted, and the statutory limitation period had passed, our client was free to go.
