Client Charged with Reckless Wounding avoids jail.

Client Charged with Reckless Wounding avoids jail.

Our client and the victim had worked together and had a fall out prior to the incident. After a brief verbal altercation, both our client and the victim approached each other. Our client proceeded to pulling out a knife and striking the victim on the leg causing a 18cm long and 2cm deep cut.  

Police located our client and proceeded to execute a search warrant.  Later that day Police charged him at Parramatta Police Station with  Wound person with intent to causing Grievous Bodily Harm under Section 33 (1) (A) of The Crimes Act 1900. This offence carries a significant term of imprisonment and would severely impact our client as he is the primary provider for his family of 4 young children. 

Considering the severity of this offence and the impact it would have on his future, he made the best decision and contacted Oxford Lawyers at Parramatta. He was able to retain Mr Zemarai Khatiz, Principal Defence Solicitor and Accredited Criminal law Specialist. Mr Khatiz evaluated every aspect of our client’s case and succeeded in having the charge of wounding person with intent to cause grievous bodily harm downgraded to reckless wounding. Mr Khatiz further managed to convince the DPP to finalise this matter in the local court.

Mr Khatiz’ extensive preparation and submissions resulted in this very serious charge being disposed of by way of an ICO at the Penrith Local Court, which ensured that our client would not serve prison time. 

Our client was very happy and appreciative of the result. He was thankful for all the hard work and dedication Mr Khatiz and his staff presented to reach the best outcome.
