Our client is a 44 year old man from the NSW North Coast. He was accused of sexually assaulting his friend of several years. Our client agreed they had sexual intercourse, but was adamant that it was consensual.
The cross-examination of the complainant revealed several inconsistencies in her version of the events, and it soon became clear that she fabricated the complaint to cover-up the fact that she had been unfaithful to her husband. It was then revealed that she had interfered with witnesses, telling one of them to change the testimony they gave in court.
The case was thrown out of court on that basis, and the complainant is now under investigation for perjury and attempting to pervert the course of justice.
