A Busselton party boy has secured a spent conviction after being caught with both meth and LSD. Scully Bernard Macfarlane, 21, pleaded guilty in Busselton Magistrate’s Court to two charges of possession of prohibited drugs, for which he was fined. Earlier this year a backpack was handed in to Busselton Police Station in which three capsules of methamphetamine totalling 0.15g were concealed, as well as a clip seal bag of LSD. When Macfarlane attended the station to collect his bag he admitted to possession of the drugs. Macfarlane’s sentencing came after a six-week stint with the drug and alcohol diversion program, which his lawyer said he successfully completed. Through his lawyer he also applied for a spent conviction given his goals of entering the fly-in, fly-out workforce, which would be greatlyaffected if a conviction was on his record. “He does explain he’s a user but is more of a recreational drug user and uses it as more of a party drug,” his lawyer told the court. “This has been a wake-up call for him, the fact that he’s had to come into court.” “He has engaged with counselling and realises his excessive choices at this age and has not used any drugs since he was charged.” While the man currently works at a brewery, he hoped to enter the mining industry and eventually open his own landscaping business. Magistrate Belinda Coleman agreed to a simple fine of $400 and agreed to the spent conviction given his lack of criminal record. “You’ve done very well on the diversion program which I’m pleased to see,” she said. “You are still a very young man, never been before the court before, a conviction for these two drug offences are highly likely to have a detrimental effect on your future in terms of your employment prospects.” The spent conviction means neither charge will show on Macfarlane’s criminal record when a background check is ordered.
