Client found Not Guilty after Domestic Dispute Turns Physical

Oxford Lawyers Criminal lawyers Parramatta – Criminal Lawyers Sydney

Our client was a prospective police officer but an allegation of domestic violence could have ruined him forever.

Our client and his girlfriend got into a minor domestic dispute over comments left by her on Instagram. Things became heated and she began yelling at him to leave while pushing him and even throwing a clothing basket at his head in anger.

In an attempt to defend himself, he pushed her away. Unfortunately, the victim fell down and hurt her back. Our client immediately began apologising. In the days to come, our client and the victim exchanged text messages in which our client constantly apologised.

Nevertheless, a month later the victim went to the police and filed a report. Our client was arrested and charged with Assault Occasioning Actual Bodily Harm and Common Assault Domestic Violence related pursuant to s59 (1) and s61 of the Crimes Act 1900 NSW respectively. If found guilty of either of these offences, our client was facing a term of imprisonment.

Thankfully, he contacted Oxford Lawyers and Mr Zemarai Khatiz, Principal Solicitor and Criminal Law Specialist who carefully prepared submission in order to persuade the court that our client was merely acting in self-defence. The magistrate was convinced and our client was found Not Guilty with all the charges being dismissed.

Our client was extremely happy with the result. Due to the allegations, he had dropped out of his policing course as he feared he would not pass a background check. However, as a result of the fantastic outcome, he has no conviction on his criminal record and is able to pursue his life ambitions.
