All Four Defendants Not Guilty of Assaulting Police at The Rocks

CRIMINAL CASE

Sydney Criminal Lawyers® secured ‘not guilty’ verdicts in Downing Centre Local Court for four clients charged with ‘affray’ and ‘assault occasioning actual bodily harm’ against two off-duty police officers.

The officers, who had been drinking alcohol, saw one of our clients letting down a police car tyre at The Rocks, Sydney.

One of the officers then walked-up and kicked our client to the buttocks.

The officers claim to have announced that they were police officers and were placing our client under arrest.

Our clients then beat-up both of the officers, causing significant injuries and hospitalisation.

The hearing ran for 5 days and the prosecution tried to argue that:

  1. the officers were acting in execution of their duty, despite being off-duty and
  2. our clients did not act in self-defence.

However, the Presiding Magistrate found a reasonable possibility that our clients acted in self-defence and dismissed all charges.
