No Jail for Client charged with Dangerous Driving Causing Grievous Bodily Harm

No Jail for Client charged with Dangerous Driving Causing Grievous Bodily Harm

Our client was driving home on a Thursday night. His vehicle collided with a vehicle parked on the side of the road, which then travelled and hit a pedestrian. When the police arrived, they formed the opinion our client was well affected by alcohol. The roadside breath test returned a positive result so our client was arrested and taken to Granville Police Station for the purpose of a breath analysis.

At the police station, the breath analysis returned another a positive reading. Our client was charged with four offences: Dangerous driving occasioning grievous bodily harm under Sections 52A(3)(a) and 52A(3)(c) Crimes Act 1900; negligent driving (occasions grievous bodily harm) under Section 117(1)(b) Road Transport Act 2013; and cause bodily harm by misconduct under Section 53 Crimes Act 1900. These are serious offences and there was a possibility that our client would be imprisoned.

Our client had a clean criminal history prior to this incident. It was out of character for him and he was full of remorse for his actions. He contacted Oxford Lawyers and retained Principal Solicitor and Accredited Criminal Law Specialist Mr Zemarai Khatiz. Mr Khatiz appeared at Fairfield Local Court, where he made powerful submissions regarding our client’s remorse and his low risk of reoffending. The magistrate accepted these submissions and imposed an intensive correction order. This meant that the client avoid going to jail.

Our client was very pleased with the result as it meant that he was able to avoid jail time. He was able to return to his everyday life and continue to work and be with his family.
