The case was initially in Blacktown Local Court where the Presiding Magistrate had imposed a conviction, 12 months disqualification, an $800 fine and $76 court costs.
Sydney Criminal Lawyers® successfully appealed that decision and our client, who needs his licence for employment, can retain his job and continue to support his wife and two young children.
In Parramatta District Court, Sydney Criminal Lawyers® obtained a 'section 10' (no conviction) for a 21 year old security guard who punched a soccer fan in the face resulting in a broken nose and extensive bruising.
The incident occurred during a tense match between the Western Wanderers and Sydney FC.
A patron ran onto the ground and security guards followed.
Our client attempted to jump over the fence onto the playing field to join the other guards, but felt the complainant holding his foot. It was claimed that the complainant was just trying to help our client over the fence.
Our client turned and punched the man in the face causing extensive injuries requiring hospitalisation and surgery.
The case is an example that 'section 10' is available despite serious injuries being occasioned.
A jury in Parramatta District Court unanimously found our 38 year old client 'not guilty' of all 3 counts of 'sexual intercourse without consent'.
The case involved our client and the female complainant meeting in a Sydney Cabaret Bar and sharing drinks.
The complainant then invited our client back to her sister's apartment.
The pair were engaging in sexual intercourse on the balcony, when the sister came out of her bedroom and said 'What are you doing? You have a boyfriend'.
The complainant then claimed she was being sexually assaulted.
It is unfortunate that police and the over-zealous DPP insisted on the case going all the way to a jury trial.
