Depending on weight and other factors that could suggest drug dealing, drug charges are either heard in the Magistrates Court jurisdiction or District Court jurisdiction. To prove a drug charge the prosecution must show your knowledge of the drugs, that you have control of it and if charged with intent to sell or supply, that the drugs were your drugs and not for personal use.
Remember – Drug charges in some circumstances could lead to police seizing cars, personal items, houses, bank accounts and all of your prized possessions. Shadgett Legal has experienced counsel for fighting assets seizure and negotiating lesser charges to protect from asset seizure.
