section 10 no conviction and no loss of licence for drug driving at Windsor Court for our 41-year-old client

Our client is a 41-year-old father of two from Windsor who owns and operates his own courier company. He is the sole provider for his household and his wife works in a secretarial role for the family business.

Our client was stopped by police one evening and was drug tested, this test returning a positive sample; our client was then arrested and taken to the police station where he was charged with drive with illicit substance in fluid sample and later released.

Upon being released, our client contacted our CDLA Sydney office where he was transferred to our lawyer Alex Istifan. Our client initially informed us that the situation was hopeless as he had friends who were charged with the same offence, and they had all lost their license and faced hefty fines. Our client had an extensive driving record with over thirty offences stemming back to 1998, causing him to believe that it was inevitable that he would lose his license and as a result his family would face immense financial hardship as he would not be able to work.

Our Alex Istifan immediately informed our client that he was in the right hands and everything would be okay; from the initial consultation, Alex and our client worked together to prepare and carefully collate the vital documents to secure the best possible outcome in court.

On the day of court, Alex tendered all the important prepared material and evidence to the court, and made extensive submissions in support of our client. Our client had a strong need for his licence and we presented key pieces of evidence to back this up.

In the result, the Windsor Local Court was convinced, that even though our client had a very bad traffic record, a section 10 non conviction was appropriate given all the evidence the court was given. Our client ended up keeping his license and walking away with no criminal conviction for this offence, and no fine.

This meant that our client could keep providing for his family.
