We represented the client at the Heidelberg Magistrates’ Court on the charge of Contravene Family Violence Intervention Order.
During earlier case conferences, certain facts which were disputed by our client were subsequently not alleged. These negotiations with the prosecution resulted in a less serious summary of facts than what had previously been the case. The client then entered a plea of guilty to a consolidation of 3 police briefs.
We obtained very impressive material from the client which had demonstrated the pro active steps she had taken towards her rehabilitation. The court was able to consider the criminality of the 2 breaches of Intervention Orders on the basis that they were not accompanied by allegations of violence or criminal damage.
