Not Guilty of Serious Assault Charges

RELATED TO: Intentionally Causing Grievous Bodily Harm or Wounding, Assault Charges
CRIMINAL CASE

The jury in Downing Centre District Court found our client ‘not guilty’ of all charges including Causing Grievous Bodily Harm with Intent after a difficult 9 day trial.

The charges arose from an allegation that our client and another man attacked the complainant with a steel bar and baseball bat on a Saturday night in Redfern, causing two fractures to his lower jaw, deep lacerations, extensive bruising and swelling to the face, chest and limbs.

The complainant positively identified our client and his co-accused as being responsible for the assault.

Our defence team went to great lengths to obtain footage and materials establishing an alibi for our client.

We also obtained evidence discrediting the complainant’s version including extensive footage of the area and material undermining the accuracy of the identification, including meteorological evidence to the effect that the moon was only at 3% visibility (which is not available through the Bureau of Meteorology or other regularly-used avenues).

Each member of our 8 lawyer-strong defence team had a role to play in the preparation of our client’s defence – which proved to be decisive.

Our client’s co-accused was represented by another law firm and was found guilty for the same incident.

He was remanded in custody and faces a maximum penalty of 25 years imprisonment.

It is yet another example of our firm providing an outstanding defence to serious criminal charges.
