Community Corrections Order (CCO) for Assault and Criminal Damage
Our client was a 60-year old man who, at the relevant date of the offending, had achieved significant success in business. The police charged him with Reckless Conduct Endangering Life, Intentionally Cause Injury, Recklessly Cause Injury, Criminal Damage, and Unlawful Assault.
Shaun Pascoe provided legal representation for the client at the Heidelberg Magistrates’ Court. The initial charges were:
Our plea in mitigation was enhanced with a bundle of compelling character references, and several medical reports which helpfully outlined matters personal to the client. Evident in character references and the psychological reports was our client’s remorse for his actions.
- The accused applied force to the complainant’s body
- The application of force was intentional or reckless
- The application of force was without lawful justification or excuse
