Dismissal for Assaulting Police

CRIMINAL CASE

The Magistrate in Downing Centre Local Court granted section 10(1)(a) dismissals to our 27 year old client who was charged with ‘assaulting police‘, ‘resisting arrest’, ‘offensive conduct’ and ‘continuing intoxicated behaviour after move-on direction’.

The charges arose from an incident at Bayswater Road, Potts Point when our intoxicated client was swearing loudly at her partner and aggressively pursuing him along the footpath.

Police saw the incident and intervened. Our client then allegedly struck out at police, swore at them repeatedly, attempted to bite an officer’s hand and physically resisted their repeated attempts to arrest and calm her down.

Sydney Criminal Lawyers® convinced police to withdraw the ‘assault police’ and ‘continue intoxicated behaviour’ charges.

Our client then pleaded guilty to ‘resisting arrest‘ and ‘offensive’ conduct, and the Magistrate was persuaded to grant her ‘section 10(1)(a) dismissals’ – which means that she avoids a criminal conviction.
