Not Guilty of Resisting Police; Magistrate Criticises Heavy-Handed Officers

CRIMINAL CASE

The Magistrate in Downing Centre Local Court dismissed the case against our 30 year old client who was charged with ‘resisting officer in execution of duty’.

Police arrested our client in Woolloomoolloo when they suspected him of possessing drugs.

Our client ‘violently resisted’ and was thrown to the footpath head-first, sustaining bruising to the face.

He was held face-down by police ‘for at least 2 minutes’.

The Magistrate found our client ‘not guilty’ and criticised police for acting ‘recklessly and outside their powers’.
