No Prison for Alleged Robbery in Company


Print

Sydney Criminal Lawyers obtained an ‘intensive correction order’ (ie community service, supervision and counselling – no prison) for a 21 year old man accused of ‘robbery in company’ (ie robbery with another person) in the drive-thru of McDonalds, West Ryde.

This was achieved by persuading the DPP to withdraw the ‘robbery in company’ charge and replacing it with a much less-serious ‘assault’ charge.

Our client (who was captured by CCTV and caught at the scene) then pleaded guilty to ‘assault’-only and Sydney Criminal Lawyers successfully fought to keep him out of prison, despite his lengthy criminal record.

This is an outstanding result because the man who committed the offence with our client (the ‘co-accused’) received a two and a half year prison sentence for the same crime! His criminal lawyers were unable to reduce their client’s charge down to ‘assault’ and to keep their client out of prison.

It pays to choose the right criminal lawyers.
