A young Gold Coast lawyer who was arrested by police during a raid on her apartment last year will face trial for possessing the drug ice.
The decision handed down at her committal hearing is the latest setback for aspiring criminal lawyer Briana Ioannides, 26, who was also taken into custody in May for breaching bail conditions.
Ioannides is trying to get her life ‘back on track’, according to a report in The Courier-Mail.

Outside the court she claimed to be determined to fight the charges against her.
She was stood down from her role at a top firm on the Gold Coast.
Ioannides was arrested in May after police stormed an apartment at Broadbeach on Queensland’s Gold Coast during a drug raid.
Ioannides’ lawyer, Chris Hannay, had told the court at the time that his client was ‘in the wrong place at the wrong time’.
She was granted bail then and ordered to attend rehab, but allegedly violated her bail conditions by staying out past her curfew and not reporting to police.
