Use Carriage Guilty Plea, Stalking Charges Withdrawn

The client was charged with stalking and use carriage of service to harass and intimidate.

The client was charged after he and 2 co-accused used their mobile phones to repeatedly prank-call a young lady, who was randomly chosen, over a period of 10 months. On occasions, lewd comments were made to the victim.

We represented the client at the Dandenong Children’s Court.

The client had demonstrated remorse for his actions by writing a letter of apology and assisting police with their investigations.

Ultimately the charge of stalking was withdrawn and the matter proceeded on the alternate charge of using a carriage of service to harass. A good behaviour bond was imposed without conviction.
