We represented the client at the Heidelberg Magistrates’ Court.
The allegations were denied at the earliest interview, and the matter proceeded through case conference, contest mention, and finally contested hearing. The prosecution case was deficient in that a key witness was not interviewed at an early stage. There were also problems in so far as there was no medical evidence of injury.
