DPP solicitor on drug charges sentenced

by |
Former DPP Solicitor Lisa Munro has been sentenced to a 12 month good behaviour bond for drug possession.

Munro, who was a member of Group Six, an elite team of lawyers at the ODPP dealing with important cases and referrals from ICAC, pleaded guilty to one charge of possessing a prohibited drug after she was found with half a gram of cocaine in Kings Cross back in July.

Police stopped and searched Munro when she pulled up in a taxi and briefly spoke to a man before getting back in the Taxi, The Daily Telegraph reported.  Police said she was carrying the bag of cocaine and had white residue on her mouth when they searched her.

Munro resigned from the DPP last month.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the 33 year old appeared composed when she was sentenced at the Downing Centre District Court this morning.
