Bail Granted! Client Charged with Breaching AVO, Assault and Intimidation

Bail Granted! Client Charged with Breaching AVO, Assault and IntimidationPrior to this offence our client was subject to an Apprehended Domestic Violence Order (AVO) which prohibited him from assaulting, threatening, stalking and harassing the two complainants, his wife and his mother. The AVO also restricted him from approaching them and being in their company while intoxicated.

It was alleged that our client was travelling in a vehicle with the complainants when an argument about his alleged intoxication ensued. It was stated that the argument became heated after one complainant threatened to report our client to the police. Once the car stopped our client allegedly grabbed the complainant’s handbag which led her to hit her arm on the car door. It was alleged our client also pushed the second complainant after she threatened to report him to the police.
Our client was arrested and taken to Fairfield Police Station. He was charged with the following:

  1. Two counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm contrary to section 59(1) of the Crimes Act 1900. Each count carries a maximum penalty of 5 years imprisonment.
  2. Stalking and intimidating with the intent to cause fear contrary to section 13(1) of the Crimes (domestic and Personal Violence) Act 2007. This offence carries a maximum penalty of 5 years imprisonment and a $5,500 fine.
  3. Contravening restrictions in AVO as provided in section 14(1) of the Crimes (Domestic and Personal Violence) Act 2007. The maximum penalty for this offence is 2 years imprisonment and a $5,500 fine.

As a result of these charges, police formed the view that our client should be refused bail and remain in custody.

Our client contacted the Oxford Lawyers Parramatta Office and retained Principal Solicitor and Accredited Criminal Law Specialist Mr Zemarai Khatiz.

Mr Khatiz appeared at Liverpool Local Court where he made strong submissions for our client to be released on bail and provided the Magistrate with bail conditions to mitigate the Court’s bail concerns. Following Mr Khatiz’s diligent preparation the Magistrate granted our client bail and he was subsequently released from custody.
Our client was thrilled with the result which allowed him to remain in the community while his matter was heard before the courts.
