Our client live streamed a video which depicted our client holding a rifle.
In the video our client points the firearm directly at the camera and threatens to shoot people.
Police believed that our client was speaking to particular people viewing the footage.
The video was reported and sent to police. Our client made admissions to possessing the firearm during the video.
Our client was conveyed to Campbelltown Police Station.
Our client was arrested and charged with the following:
- Possess unauthorised firearm under Section 7a(1) of the Firearms Act 1996.
The maximum penalty for this offence is 5 years imprisonment.
- Not keep firearm safely not prohibited firearm/pistol under Section 39(1)(A) of the Firearms Act 1996.
The maximum penalty for this offence is 12 months imprisonment and a fine of $2200.
- Use Carriage Service to Threaten Serious Harm under Section 474.15(2) of the Criminal Code Act 1995.
The maximum penalty for this offence is 7 years imprisonment.
Considering the serious nature of the offences charged against our client, it was very possible the Court could have imposed a lengthy jail sentence against our client.
Fortunately, our client was referred to Oxford Lawyers and she retained Criminal Defence Solicitor Ms Lisa Dao.
Ms Dao appeared in Campbelltown Local Court and made strong submissions in favour of our client.
The Magistrate was persuaded and ruled in favour of our client; dismissing all the charges and diverting her under a mental health care treatment plan.
Our client was thrilled about the result as it meant her life would not be derailed by the offences. Our client was thankful for Ms Dao and the Oxford Lawyers team’s diligent work to achieve the best result for her.
