We represented the client at the Sunshine Children’s Court on the following charges:
- Attempt to Commit Indictable Offence Whilst on Bail
- Unlawful Assault
The client did not have a criminal record and wanted to avoid getting one so that his employment prospects would not be jeopardised. Submissions were made to the magistrate about why the client was suitable for diversion, about his young age, his difficult personal circumstances during the offending period, and his regret for the offending.
DISCLAIMER: This is a real case study of an actual case from our files. Details pertaining to the client have been changed to protect their privacy. The sentence imposed and the charge have not been altered. These case studies are published to demonstrate real outcomes and give an indication of possible tariffs in Court. We do not guarantee a similar case on these charges will get the same result. Please note that we post results at our discretion, therefore while many case studies are average results, others are notable for their exceptional outcomes. PUBLISHED 18/01/2018
