Diversion for Multiple Assault Charges
We acted on the client’s behalf at the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court.
After a contest mention, in which additional statements largely supported our client’s
version of events (and were consistent with his police interview), the prosecution amended the prosecution summary. As a result, several aggravating facts were subsequently removed. Upon extensive negotiations with the police, our client was recommended for diversion.
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 22/06/2015
