Exceed PCA 49(1)(f) – CCO
We were able to prove to the court that our client was actually suffering from mental health issues and alcohol dependency. This submission was supported by a psychological report for our client which we had obtained. Given these circumstances, the judge saw the need for our client to be given a chance at rehabilitation. He adjourned the case to allow our client to undergo residential rehabilitation and to eventually prove our client’s commitment to stopping his alcohol dependency.
Our client completed rehabilitation treatment at the Malvern Private Hospital.
