The court heard that the drugs contained a combined 1.3 gram of pure MDMA, which the 24-year-old and his friends were planning to take, probably at a music festival.

Prosecutor Greg Cummings said the 24-year-old & # 39; less than helpful & # 39; was after the police found $ 1960 in cash and capsules, of which 25 were packed in bags of five.

However, it was convicted of possession of dangerous drugs, possession of a wooden crate and clip-seal bags that are believed to be related to drugs, of which $ 60 are suspected of being infected and refused to give the password to his phone to police.

Judge Glen Cash said the maximum sentence for the offending prison was 15 years and that drug use at festivals was far too common among young people.

"You would know, not seldom, that people die from an ecstasy overdose at music festivals," Judge Cash said

& # 39; Young people like you take tablets, have a bad reaction, and die as a result. & # 39;

Since his arrest, the 24-year-old has completed a Diploma of Financial Planning and plans to become a certified financial planner, Cartledge said.

She said that a registered conviction could influence the future prospects of Echter and added that he had not breached the bail, that he had cleaned drugs and had broken ties with his friends involved in the drug scene.

When delivering his judgment, Judge Cash accepted that Echter was of a good character.

He was given a probationary period of one year without conviction if the assignment was not violated.
