Our client and complainant 1 had recently separated and were in the middle of divorce proceedings during the time of these alleged events occurring. Complainant 2 is a friend of complainant 1. Complainant 1 and 2 were inside the residence or dwelling of our client and complainant 1.
It was then alleged that upon our client entering the dwelling they were holding a metallic tyre iron and began to wildly swing it at complainant 1 numerous times. Complainant 1 then physically grabbed our client by the shoulders and applied significant force to restrain our client. While this occurred, complainant 2 has grabbed the end of the tyre iron while our client had hold of the shaft of the tyre iron.
During the struggle, it was alleged that our client kicked complainant 2 in the stomach causing them to move backwards and then our client has bitten complainant 1 causing them to bleed.
As a result of the altercation it was alleged that complainant one suffered from two lacerations and several abrasions to their body.
Eventually, our client was forcibly removed from the premises.
Shortly after our client was arrested and conveyed to Parramatta Police Station where they were charged with the following:
- Aggravated enter dwelling while armed contrary to Section 111(2) of the Crimes Act 1900.
The maximum penalty for this offence is 14 years imprisonment.
- Common Assault Contrary to Section 61 of the Crimes Act 1900.
The maximum penalty for this offence is 2 years imprisonment and a fine of $5500.
- Assault occasioning actual bodily harm (domestic violence related) contrary to Section 59(1) of the Crimes Act 1900.
The maximum penalty for this offence is 5 years imprisonment.
Facing highly serious charges and the prospect of a lengthy sentence of imprisonment if convicted, our client made the wise choice to contact the Oxford Lawyers Parramatta Office, where they retained Criminal Defence Solicitor Mr Zahir Zakaria.
The matter proceeded to Defended Hearing for over two days. Thanks to Mr Zakaria’s effort and his diligent preparation, the Magistrate held that our client was not guilty of all three charges !
Our client was thrilled with the result and thanked Mr Zakaria for his efforts to make this excellent result possible.
