He was charged with Fail to comply with reporting obligations.
We represented our client at the Heidelberg Magistrates’ Court.
The Court, in imposing a sentence for this case, took into account several mitigatory factors including an early plea of guilty, limited criminal history, the nature of the breach (failure to provide a previous work email address was through inadvertence as opposed to a surreptitious purpose) and that our client had been otherwise co-operative with the Police and had a good history of compliance.
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 25/02/2013
