Reckless Conduct Endangering Serious Injury – Charge Withdrawn
The client was charged with reckless conduct endangering serious injury. It was alleged that she drove at two students after they argued with her brother.
We represented the client at the Broadmeadows Magistrates’ Court.
There were numerous witnesses however the police re-interviewed witnesses about one year after taking first statements with the assistance of diagrams. Some crucial elements of statements were altered. On the surface the police case appeared very strong, however after discussion and negotiations the prosecution accepted our assessment of the case and withdrew the charge.
On the application of the prosecution, the Magistrate withdrew the charge of reckless conduct endangering serious injury.
