Sydney Criminal Lawyers obtained a ‘Section 10’ (no criminal record) in Downing Centre Court for our 30 year old client who was initially charged with Aggravated Break & Enter with Intent to Commit an Indictable Offence.
The case involved our client and another man (the ‘co-accused’) breaking and entering into an apartment in Woolloomooloo with intent to assault the occupant.
After intense negotiations, the DPP dropped the charge and replaced it with the minor charge of ‘Enter Inclosed Lands’ (trespass).
Our client pleaded guilty to that charge and no conviction was recorded against him.
Our client’s co-accused is represented by other criminal lawyers who have not had their client’s case withdrawn or reduced.
That man now faces a protracted and expensive District Court Trial and the possibility of a lengthy prison sentence.
