My 18 year old was arrested for possession and selling of drugs ( MDMA). She sold 6 and had 4 on her. Its her first offence with her boyfriend. She goes to court on the 14 May 2015. This is totally out of character for her to do and she is regretting it incredibly, been one big way to cure her of ever even using again. But she is also bipolar and I'm concerned that because of the conviction she will get that she knows she will have a massive problem getting a job which she is looking for at the moment. She does work a few hours at Kmart, but nothing permanent. She has been there for 4 yrs. However, with this stigma attached to her now are we able to apply to the courts for a punishment, but not a conviction noted on her record, so she can at least get herself a job and sort her life out? She has been attending Headspace ( mental health) for 2 years for help with her bipolar and was starting to cope quite well. She needed money to pay for a car accident she had, the excess, even though I said I would pay it and she could pay me back, she didn't want to put that burden on me. Can you give me any help please? She is only seeing the Legal Aid lawyer on the day she goes to court and thought we would like some help before then.
