Stay Out of Jail

The charge of Repeat Drug Driving is considered by the Courts of Queensland to be one of a contempt for the laws of Queensland, one which shows that the particular person in question believes that 'the laws do not apply to them'.

Repeat Drug Driving penalties in Queensland reflect this.

In the instance where a person charged with Repeat Drug Driving represents themselves, or appears at court with a lawyer who does not specialise in Qld Drug, Alcohol & Traffic law, the Magistrate or Judge will only hear a comprehensive set of submissions from the Prosecutor, and they will be exposing themselves to greater Repeat Drug Driving penalties.

Specialist Queensland Drug Alcohol & Traffic Lawyer

It is impossible for an unrepresented person, or a lawyer who practices in multiple areas of law, to be as well versed in the Drug, Alcohol & Traffic penalties and laws of Queensland as a Court Prosecutor.

Accordingly, if you value your freedom, you too need a specialised Drug, Alcohol & Traffic Lawyer.

A Repeat Drug Driving offender faces up to a maximum driver's licence disqualification of a lifetime driver's licence disqualification, depending upon the number of previous charges, and the Drug Driving charge types in each instance, with a mandatory minimum driver's licence disqualification of 3, 6, 9 or 12 months, again depending upon the number of previous charges, and the Drug Driving charge types in each instance. 

If within the period of 5 years before such conviction the person has been previously convicted of High Range Drink Driving or Driving Under the Influence of a Drug, the person faces Repeat Drug Driving penalties including licence disqualification of no less than of 1 year.

If within the period of 5 years before such conviction the person has been previously convicted more than once of High Range Drink Driving or Driving Under the Influence of a Drug, the person faces Repeat Drug Driving penalties including licence disqualification of no less than 2 years from the date of such conviction.

Repeat Drive Under the Influence of a Drug offenders whose current offence constitutes their third High Range Drink Driving or Drive Under the Influence of a Drug charge in 5 years face Mandatory Imprisonment.

Where clients face the very real risk of imprisonment, we frequently obtain wholly suspended sentences, and sentences with immediate parole, even in instances of Mandatory Imprisonment, meaning clients with this outcome do not actually go to jail.
