Our client presented a fraudulent credit card to pay for his stay in a luxury serviced apartment for 14 days, totaling to $7,809.
Our client, a Colombian national, had traveled to Australia from the United States for a business trip. While in Australia he was staying at a luxury serviced apartment for 14 days totalling to $7,809, which was charged to a business card. When the amount was later withdrawn from the account of the business, the serviced apartment was informed that it was fraudulent.
Our client was charged under section 192E (1)(b) of the Crimes Act 1900 (NSW) for fraud, which carries a maximum sentence of 10 years imprisonment.
Luckily for our client, he contacted us immediately to help him with his case, Mr Upol Amin, Criminal Defence Solicitor, advised our client to offer repayment prior to entering a plea of guilty. Appearing in the Downing Centre Local Court, Mr Amin successfully pleaded our client’s case, highlighting the circumstances in his defence. These submissions persuaded the court to dismiss the charge pursuant to a section 10 bond. This was the best result for our client, as no conviction was recorded, and a simple compensation order was made.
As no conviction was recorded, our client is able to keep a clear criminal record.
