Threats to Kill and Firearm Charges – Good Behaviour Bond
Our client’s wife is the complainant in the case. She alleged that our client became drunk and made threats to kill her and her daughter and fired shots from an unregistered firearm. She further alleged that he had previously made a number of threats to kill her and her daughter.
Our client was charged with nine offences including:
- Threats to Kill
- Possess, Carry or Use a Longarm Without a Licence
- Possess, Carry or Use an Unregistered Longarm
We represented the client at the Sunshine Magistrates’ Court.
Following discussions, the prosecutor agreed to withdraw all charges except for one charge of Possessing an Unregistered Firearm. Following submissions, the Magistrate ordered our client to be of good behaviour for twelve months and to make a donation.
