Client Escapes Criminal Record after Making Serious Threats to Work Cover

RELATED TO: Commonwealth Offences
CRIMINAL CASE

Our client is a 53 year old man who suffered a serious work accident in 2008, during which he sustained a range of serious injuries.

He has been dealing with Work Cover ever since that accident.

Frustrated by the perceived attitude of that agency, he made a series of telephone threats to Work Cover employees shortly after the Lindt Café Siege – the most serious of which was “I’ll go get a gun and come down to your office and make Martin Place look like a joke”.

Needless to say, those threats were taken very seriously by Work Cover employees and by police, who arrested and charged him with ‘use carriage service to menace / harass / offend’ under section 474.17 of the Commonwealth Criminal Code Act.

Despite the seriousness of the charge, our lawyers persuaded the Magistrate in Parramatta Local Court to deal with our client under section 19B of the Commonwealth Crimes Act, which means that he escapes a criminal record altogether.
