24-year-old client avoids jail after pleading guilty to supplying 79 MDMA capsules at music festival

Our client is a 24-year-old bar tender who was charged with supplying 79 MDMA capsules at the EPIK Music Festival in December 2019.

The case made new headlines due to the large number of capsules she had concealed within her vagina to avoid detection by police sniffer dogs.

Our client was represented by our Senior Associate, criminal lawyer Fouad Awada, who guided her at every stage of the case.

Fouad meticulously prepared her case and represented her in court, where he provided the Judge with strong persuasive submissions as to why she should not get a full-time jail sentence for the offence, despite pleading guilty.

The Burwood Local Court acknowledged that the offence was objectively serious, and ordinarily warrants a full-time jail sentence given the amount of drugs she had on her at the time, but was convinced to not send her to jail.

In the result, the Court agreed with our criminal lawyer to impose an intensive correction order, which meant that our client was not required to go into custody after pleading guilty to it.

The result reflects on the hard work, preparation and advocacy skills in court that Fouad Awada showed for the case, in the same way that he approaches every case he takes on.

Our client was able to carry on with her life.
