Our client was charged with cultivating 42 cannabis plants – he is a young man working in the horticulture industry and he had no intention of profiting from the plants.
Prior to his Court date, our client was very concerned about the impact a criminal conviction would have on his future travel plans and his employment opportunities. After pleading guilty to the offence, our defence team worked tirelessly to put him in the best possible position for his sentence hearing.
The Court ultimately accepted Ted Neaves’ submissions in mitigation and did not impose any form of penalty – a criminal conviction was not recorded.
Our client is now free to travel and or apply for employment opportunities without the worry of a criminal conviction.
