Drugs are a significant issue in our society. You may have a loved one who is addicted, or have tried to stop your own drug use. The penalties for drug trafficking and possession for sale are serious indeed. Criminal Assets Confiscation proceedings are now used as the new weapon against drugs. With the internet we are seeing a rise in Commonwealth Importation charges with many illicit drugs coming in via the ‘dark web’ from overseas locations.
As policing methods have evolved so have the best criminal lawyers. At Woods & Co we are aware of the need to be abreast of technology and be able to engage the right experts when and as required. We have defended people successfully with importation charges and high profile drug trafficking charges and taken matters to the Court of Criminal Appeal and even to the High Court of Australia.
