Five different juries in Downing Centre District Court unanimously found our 56 year old client ‘not guilty’ of 21 ‘sex offences’ including aggravated sexual assault in 5 ‘back-to-back’ trials.
The allegations arose from events of more than 20 years ago when it is alleged our client sexually interfered with children at his Balmain home.
Our client vehemently denied the allegations throughout the course of the proceedings.
The DPP refused to withdraw any of the charges and put an enormous amount of resources into prosecuting the cases.
They wanted all of the charges to be heard together but Sydney Criminal Lawyers successfully argued for the cases to be tried separately.
Each of the trials took between 6 and 10 days but, in the end, our client has been vindicated and is now free to get on with his life.
