Not Guilty of All Sexual Assault Charges

CRIMINAL CASE

The Presiding Judge in Downing Centre District Court delivered verdicts of ‘Not Guilty’ for our 54 year old client who was charged with 7 counts of ‘sexual intercourse with child between 16 and 18 years old in special care’.

The charges arose from incidents that allegedly occurred in 2006 when our client was the owner and instructor in a Chatswood dance studio.

It was alleged that he had sexual intercourse on at least 7 occasions with one of his 17 year old dance students.

Sydney Criminal Lawyers® managed to have the case dealt with by a ‘judge alone’, rather than by a jury who would likely have been prejudiced against our client.

After over a week of trial, Her Honour found that the prosecution failed to prove beyond reasonable doubt that the complainant was under 18 years of age at the time of the alleged incidents.

Accordingly, she acquitted our client of all charges and he is free to get on with his life.
