Obscene Exposure – Investigation Closed

This is a case study on a charge of Obscene Exposure. Investigation was closed following presentation of evidence that dispute the allegations against the accused.

What is alleged to have occured?
The police attended our client’s home where he was arrested for indecent exposure. It had been reported by the neighbouring property that he had exposed himself to people from the bedroom window of his house. Our client was transported to the police station and was interviewed where he made a full interview and was released pending summons.

What happened at court?
Amelia Ramsay acted on the client’s behalf on the charge of Obscene Exposure.

We obtained instructions to develop and present a written advice that would be provided to the police in an effort to stop them from proceeding with charging our client. Often, simply being charged with a criminal offence may cause a person to lose their job or impact their personal life.

Private investigators were engaged to assist in the compilation of evidence to support our client’s position in disputing the allegation. Within a two week time-frame, a detailed and comprehensive advice as to the prospects of success in such a prosecution was delivered to the police.

What was the result?
Following consideration of our advice and the supporting material we had gathered, we were notified that the police would not be proceeding to charge our client with Obscene Exposure and the investigation was closed.

The client was able to demonstrate his innocence without having to go through the court process and, in doing so, he was able to keep the matter private.
