Client Not Guilty at Trial for Armed Robbery and Kidnapping !

The Victims were at their home having lunch. During this time several men entered the house. The men were unknown to the occupants of the house. It was alleged that one of the perpetrators were armed with a knife with a 15 cm blade, another armed with what the victim believed to be a black hand gun; another with a taser and machete. The victims recall there being anywhere between 5-7 perpetrators in their home, all disguised with black face masks and gloves. It was alleged by the Crown that our client, was one of the alleged perpetrators. The males then assaulted and handcuffed the victims.

The matter proceeded to a Judge Alone Trial at Sydney District Court. Ms Dao prepared and worked tirelessly as the Trial went on for multiple weeks. Ultimately and despite the forensic evidence, the Judge ruled that our client was not guilty in relation to all offences!Our client was overjoyed by the result and appreciated the preparation and dedication Ms Dao put into their matter. Our Client thanked Ms Dao for achieving this excellent result.
