Man accused of drug trafficking granted bail to attend rehab
A TOOGOOM man accused of trafficking drugs has been granted bail on the condition that he attend a 12-month rehabilitation program.
Warren William Peter Lohman applied for bail at Brisbane Supreme Court last month when Justice Jean Dalton raised concerns about his drug habits.
His bail application was adjourned to give his lawyers time to find him a place in rehabilitation.
On Friday, his case was mentioned again at Brisbane Supreme Court and the court heard he had been accepted into a 12-month rehabilitation program on the Fraser Coast.
The court heard the Crown was adamant that Mr Lohman remain in the rehab program for 12 months and that it would not be willing to accept changes to his bail conditions unless there were compelling reasons.
The court also heard he will be able to go immediately to the rehab centre.
