Drug Charges for a Person Unaware
A 38 year old woman was sentenced last week by the Supreme Court for permitting the use of a place for the production of drugs, even though she claimed that she was unaware that the cannabis crop was growing in her backyard.
The woman was living at the time rent-free with her de facto partner at a property at Laidley North.
In sentencing, Justice Atkinson said Booth knew the cannabis was there in a back shed on the property but did not inform authorities.
However, given her very minimal involvement in the drug crop, she escaped Queensland’s highest court with a $50 fine and no conviction.
She was represented by Nathan Bouchier of Bosscher Lawyers, Toowoomba.
