Administering a Noxious Substance

Administering a Noxious Substance

Administering a Noxious Substance does not just include poison, but this charge can include drugs that are given to a person without their knowledge or consent. This offence often arises in situations where the accused gives their date the date rape drug (GHB) to the complainant without his or her knowledge or consent. Sometimes, the offence may arise in cases when the complainant consents to a drug, but the drug itself resulted in serious harm or death.

You have a right to remain silent, and it is important to do so. The police may attempt to engage you in conversation, but they are only looking for further information to convict you. Therefore, you must remain silent. If there is something that needs to be said, it can be said through your lawyer at Court. You are entitled to speak to a lawyer upon detention or arrest – make sure you do.

If convicted, jail time will likely be significant. Hire Counsel who is willing to vigorously defend your rights. Call East Law for further info.
