Terrigal Night Out Gone Wrong: Three Co-Offenders Let Off Without Conviction

Our Mr Francis Caesar Devine, Associate, represented three young co-defendants charged with possessing small quantities of cocaine on a night out in Terrigal. Each of them pleaded guilty and were sentenced in the Local Court at Gosford.

Mr Devine put together strong subjective cases on behalf of each client and presented all the relevant mitigating factors for the Court’s consideration. At first, his Honour indicated that he was inclined to record a criminal conviction and fine each of the defendants. However, because of Mr Devine’s advocacy, his Honour was persuaded to finalise the matter without recording a conviction.

Each of the young men and their families were extremely relieved that this instance of naive misjudgment would not become a permanent mark on their criminal records.
