CRIMINAL CASE

No Conviction for 4 Charges of Dog Attack

Section 10 Dismissal, Dangerous Dog Cases

Print

The Presiding Judge in Downing Centre District Court dismissed all charges under section 10(1)(a) for our 52 year old client from Leichhardt, whose dogs attacked a neighbour’s cat which later died.

The same dogs were involved in a previous attack against the same cat, after which our client reinforced his fences. Unfortunately, the dogs escaped again.

Our client is a self-employed electrician who remains conviction-free which means that he can keep his security licence. He needs the licence to install security systems into various businesses and organisations, including government departments.
