Assault Charges & AVO (domestic violence related) Dropped

RELATED TO: Recklessly Causing Grievous Bodily Harm or Wounding, Apprehended Violence Orders (AVOs), Assault Charges
CRIMINAL CASE

Police have withdrawn the charge of Reckless Wounding and AVO (domestic violence related) against our 26 year old client after our defence team prepared two detailed sets of written submissions requesting withdrawal and pushed relentlessly for the case to be dropped.

The charge and AVO arose from an incident on 17th May 2014 when our client stabbed her partner in the leg with a 20cm long kitchen knife causing a large open wound requiring hospitalisation and sutures.

Our client maintained that her actions were undertaken in self defence after her partner threw a mug and then advanced upon her.

The case was scheduled to go to a defended hearing in Hornsby Local Court, but police have decided to drop the charge and the AVO rather than pursue the case in court.

Our client is now spared from the stress and expense of defended proceedings.

It is yet another example of ‘domestic violence-related’ charges being dropped through hard work and perseverance.
