Without Conviction for Breach Intervention Order

This is a case study involving a sentence of without conviction for Breach Intervention Order.

What is alleged to have occured?
Our client had two matters listed at court. One matter involved allegedly breaching a Family Violence Intervention Order by attending his ex-partner’s address. The second matter involved charges of intentionally causing injury, recklessly causing injury, and unlawful assault against his ex-partner. This matter was serious and the police alleged that he had hit his ex-partner multiple times causing her a number of serious bruises and cuts.

What happened at court?
We acted on the client’s behalf at the Sunshine Magistrates’ Court for the charge of Breach Intervention Order.

The client decided to plead guilty to both matters. A number of submissions were made including the early guilty plea, the client’s remorse and regret, the client’s mental health issues, and the client’s completion of a Men’s Behavioural Change Program.

What was the result?
Following submissions, his Honour imposed a fine without conviction for the Breach Intervention Order charge.
