Our client, a father who resides overseas, was visiting his children who live here in Sydney. Police alleged that he had met with his ex-wife, her new partner, and their two children for dinner to celebrate his son’s 16th birthday. Later that night, our client was understandably struggling with the separation from his child on such an occasion and decided to head back to the house.
Here, it was alleged that our client had broken the seals of both front doors in order to break into the house. He was accused of entering his ex-wife’s bedroom whilst being armed with a knife and making threats towards her new partner. Allegedly he had grabbed the partner by his chest and attempted to push him outside, which resulted in injuries to the partner’s chest and damage to his necklace.
Upon these accusations, our client was charged with five offences. First he was charged with Assault Occasioning Actual Bodily Harm under Section 59(1) of the Crimes Act 1900. Secondly he was charged with Destroying or Damaging Property under Section 195(1)(A) of the Crimes Act 1900. Thirdly he was charged with being Armed with Intent to Commit an Indictable Offence under Section 114(1)(A) of the Crimes Act 1900. Fourthly he was charged with Aggravated Break and Enter under Section 113(2) of the Crimes Act 1900. Finally he was charged with Stalking or Intimidation with intent to cause fear of physical or mental harm under Section 13(1) of the Crimes (Domestic and Personal Violence) Act 2007. Our client was then taken to Burwood Police Station. The Police vigorously opposed bail and subsequently refused bail from the police station.
Due to the seriousness of the alleged offences, our client retained Oxford Lawyers. Mr Zemarai Khatiz, Principal Solicitor and Accredited Criminal Law Specialist, took the case on and immediately applied for bail at Burwood Local Court.
Despite the lack of ties to the community, the lengthy charges and the serious nature of the offences, Mr Khatiz’s thorough preparation and compelling submissions persuaded the Magistrate to grant bail.
Our client was incredibly thankful for this result as he was able to continue residing within the community whilst his matter was being finalised.
