High Court Appeal Successful

CRIMINAL CASE

In the High Court of Australia, Sydney Criminal Lawyers® successfully appealed the triple murder conviction of a 32-year old man from Greenacre in Sydney’s West.

The man came to our firm after being convicted by a jury in the Supreme Court of New South Wales in connection with a spate of murders in Sydney’s west.

We made an application for ‘special leave’ to appeal the conviction on the basis of a number of errors of law in the justice’s directions to the jury both in the course of the evidence and in his Honour’s summing up.

When the matter proceeded to a hearing, the High Court agreed that the directions resulted in a ‘miscarriage of justice’.

Their Honours quashed our client’s convictions and ordered that the matter be remitted to the Supreme Court for a retrial.
