Our client was well aware of the extremely serious nature of her charges and immediately contacted Oxford Lawyers. The case was handled directly by the Principal and Accredited Specialist in Criminal Law, Mr Zemarai Khatiz who’s first major task was ensuring our client was granted Bail. He appeared at Penrith Local Court armed with extremely strong submissions and key bail conditions that would remove any unacceptable risk. The magistrate agreed with Mr Khatiz’ arguments and granted our client bail.

After extensive further preparation Mr Khatiz appeared at the Supreme Court of NSW. A very lengthy trial concluded with our client receiving a section 9 good behaviour bond for 2 years.
