Drunken Assaults Against Police
We represented the client at the Broadmeadows Magistrates’ Court on the following charges:
The matter proceeded as a plea of guilty following negotiations with the prosecution. The Assault Police charges were amended to proceed as summary offences and the summary had several parts deleted or modified in accordance with the client’s instructions. Submissions as to penalty were then made and there was extensive in-court discussion regarding the matter.
This was a good result especially considering that it was a case of drunken assaults against police officers.
- The accused committed an assault or made a threat to assault
- The assault or threat to assault was made against a police officer on duty
- The intent behind the assault or the threat to assault is to resist or prevent the lawful apprehension or detention of a person
