We acted on the client’s behalf at the Heidelberg Magistrates’ Court.
The Magistrate was given a full explanation of the instant offence and the previous history of our client. It was accepted that there had been partial compliance with the order and that the breach could be characterised as being very technical. A full explanation of other mitigatory facts was also presented, including our client’s excellent work history.
This was certainly a better outcome than what is usually imposed for a charge of Failing to Comply With Reporting Conditions Under SORA, especially considering the existence of relevant priors.
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 19/11/2017
