Bail granted for client allegedly growing weed in own home

In April 2024, our client was arrested by NSW police and charged with possess unauthorized pistol, contrary to section 7(1) of the Firearms Act 1996 and cultivate by enhanced indoor means prohibited plant for commercial purpose, contrary to section 23(1A) of the Drug Misuse and Trafficking Act 19985.

The police alleged that our client was cultivating 38 cannabis plants through a hydroponic set up inside a bedroom in his home. They also alleged that our client provided the cannabis for a commercial purpose.

Our Sydney criminal lawyer represented our client at his bail hearing at Wollongong Local Court, where he argued that the charges will be defended, that the firearm was a replica and that even if our client is convicted, a full time jail sentence is not inevitable.

The Magistrate ultimately agreed with our Sydney criminal lawyers submissions, and granted our client bail with very strict conditions.
