Client avoids Criminal Record after Assaulting a Security Guard

RELATED TO: Section 10 Dismissal, Common Assault, Assault Occasioning Actual Bodily Harm, Assault Charges
CRIMINAL CASE

The Magistrate in Downing Centre Local Court was persuaded not to record a criminal conviction against our 29 year old client who punched a security guard several times to the face causing bruising and swelling.

Our client and his friend were drinking at Court House Hotel, Darlinghurst when, at around 2.30am, they were asked to leave due to their rowdy behaviour and state of intoxication.

Our client became argumentative and then punched one of the guards 3 times to the face and several times to the upper body area.

The incident was captured on the Hotel’s CCTV cameras.

Our lawyers managed to have his charge of ‘assault occasioning actual bodily harm‘ reduced to ‘common assault’ and our client pleaded guilty to that charge.

Our client attended anger management counselling and obtained three character references in the lead-up to his court date.

The Magistrate was then persuaded to grant him a 12 month ‘section 10 bond‘, which means that he avoids a criminal conviction altogether.
