By Anthony Byrne, Principal Solicitor

(Sydney) - A client who was charged by NSW Police with Drive While Under the Influence of a Drug or Illicit Substance 2nd+ offence recently had his matter dismissed in the Sutherland Local Court.

After being pulled over for an RBT, Police Officers subsequently took a swab test sample, with the client returning a positive result for being under the influence of an illicit substance. 

Principal Anthony Byrne, assisted by Paralegal Isabella Moretti, were able to have the matter dismissed without conviction, pursuant to a good behaviour bond for a period of 6 months. This result means that not only has the client escaped conviction for his 2nd offence of this nature, he also avoids paying a substantial penalty to Revenue NSW, and can continue to drive on NSW roads.
