Our client was an Irish national who inadvertently produced a bag of cocaine in front of police after he had been ejected from a nightclub and was arguing with bouncers. He was charged with possession and remaining in the vicinity of a licensed venue after being turned out. We advised him to plead guilty and made submissions in favour of mitigation of penalty. The Court was minded to accept our submissions, and imposed put our client on a 9 month good behaviour bond under section 1o for the drug charge. For the remaining in the vicinity offence, our client was convicted and ordered to pay a small fine.
