Bail Granted & Then Found Not Guilty for Client Charged with Possession of Four Firearms, Ammunition, Breach of a Prohibition Order, and Unlawful Possession of a Black Leather Police Jacket Part 1/2

Four Firearms, Ammunition

A 6 chamber revolver, a German pistol, a shotgun, 4 shotgun rounds and a stolen Police Leather Jacket found in the first search of the house. On a firearms prohibition order because of this, a replica pistol was found in the second search. Client still found not guilty of all charges.

It was alleged that our client had stored the four firearms and the police vest at his girlfriend’s house. The girlfriend’s mother had found them under the bed and called the police. The police spoke to the girlfriend and she said that it was not hers and that the firearms and the vest belonged to our client. However, our client denied it was his but the police still charged him.

Our client was subsequently arrested and faced multiple charges under; section 7(1) of the Firearms Act 1996 (Cth), section 36 (1) of the Firearms Act 1996 (Cth) on two counts, section 65 (3) of the Firearms Act 1996 (Cth), and section 527c (1) (A) of the Crimes Act 1900 (NSW). If found guilty, this list of charges alone could result in a term of long term imprisonment.

He was refused bail by the police and had to appear at Parramatta Local Court for a bail application.

Fortunately, he contacted Oxford Lawyers and Mr Zemarai Khatiz, Principal of Oxford Lawyers and Accredited Specialist in Criminal Law began working on his case. Mr Khatiz appeared ath the bail application and argued that it was a weak case against our client, especially as there was no DNA or fingerprint evidence. The magistrate agreed and granted bail.

However, our client’s problems only got worse from here.
