Drug driving can include a variety of offences, but the most common is generally an illicit drug or substance found in your system. This is generally a result of a RDT Random Drug Test which can locate a number of drugs including THC (which is the primary ingredient in marijuana/cannabis), MDMA (contained in party drugs such as ecstacy tablets), whilst other drugs such as heroin, amphetamines and cocaine can also be detected.


Drug in System is a different offence to Driving Under the Influence (DUI) which requires the prosecution to establish that you were influenced/affected by the drug at the time of your arrest or when brought to police attention.


It is important to prepare your case properly and speak to the top Penrith Drug Driving Lawyers so proper advice can be given on the best way to run your matter and what will be required to prepare and secure the best possible result.

Judge and Gavel


The onus in proving any criminal offence always remains with the prosecution. The NSW Police or other Prosecuting authority must prove each element beyond reasonable doubt.


However, even in cases where an offence can be proven beyond reasonable doubt, an accused has the right to raise a legal defence to the charge. Such Legal Defence include self-defence, honest and reasonable mistake of fact, claim of right, duress, etc.


If you are going to Court and want to engage a specialist Court Trial or Court Defence Lawyer, contact us as soon as possible to discuss your case and the best way to prepare for a plea of not guilty and defence of the allegation.



Just because you are found guilty of an offence, it does not automatically mean you will be convicted. A conviction can cause significant difficulties for you in the future and can have ramifications on your employment, travel, custody of children and other areas of life.


There are three ways that a person who is found guilty of a NSW State offence, can avoid a conviction.


All these orders are made under the Crimes (Sentencing Procedure) Act 1999 an include:


  1. Section 10 (1) (a) - complete dismissal of the charge;

  2. Section 10 (1) (c) - good behaviour bond for up to two years with an 'intervention plan' and

  3. Section 9 (1) (b) which is a 'conditional release order' as a good behaviour bond for up to two years.


If you want to avoid a criminal conviction for any criminal or traffic offence, call your Criminal Lawyer in Penrith as soon as possible to arrange a free first consultation.
