SUCCESSFUL APPEAL – No Conviction for charges of Assault with Sticks!

Oxford Lawyers Criminal lawyers Parramatta – Criminal Lawyers Sydney


Our clients were the owner and manager of a transport company and they had a dispute with their employees which resulted in a fight between our clients and the employees.

During the fight sticks were introduced and both parties have used them.

Witnesses then called the police.

As a result of the fight, all parties suffered significant injuries and were conveyed to the hospital.

Our clients were charged with Assault Occasioning Actual Bodily Harm under Section 59(2) and Common Assault under Section 61 of the of the Crimes Act 1900. 

The Maximum penalty for Assault Occasioning Actual Bodily Harm is 5 years imprisonment and the maximum penalty for Common Assault is 2 years imprisonment and a fine of $2200.
Fearing for the worst, our clients contacted Oxford Lawyers and retained criminal defence solicitor Mr Zahir Zakaria.

Mr Zakaria believed that our clients deserve a second chance for this incident and appealed the matters to Parramatta District Court.

Mr Zakaria made strong submissions that highlighted the punishment imposed by the Local Court was too severe.

The Judge was persuaded by Mr Zakaria and ruled in favour of both of our clients. Both our clients received a good behaviour bond without a conviction!

Given the nature and the seriousness of the offences, our clients were astonished by the result and were extremely thankful to Mr Zakaria and the Oxford Lawyers team for their dedicated work.
