We represented the client at the Ringwood Magistrates’ Court.
It was clear from first listing of the case that the evidence in support of the burglary, theft and deal with proceeds of crime were not strong.
Ultimately, and after prolonged negotiations with the police prosecutors, the serious charges of burglary and theft were withdrawn.
A plea in mitigation commenced with respect to charges of obtain property by deception and possess cannabis (very small quantity).
