Criminal Law Cases

Charged with a criminal offence?
We can help.

Our client is a 27-year-old woman from Coogee, NSW.

She had gotten into an argument with her boyfriend in Coogee near McDonald’s restaurant, which had gotten physical and resulted in our client ripping the shirt of her boyfriend. Both were affected by alcohol.

When the police arrived, she had cooperated with the police and explained what had happened. Our client was then arrested and charged with common assault. Common assault, which is an offence under section 61 of the Crimes Act 1900, carries a maximum penalty of 2 years in prison.

Our client then got into contact with Rezae & Co Lawyers, who specialise in criminal and traffic law matters as our client had required experienced criminal lawyers who were based in Sydney.

The case ultimately proceeded to a Local Court sentence. Before the sentence had commenced, our defence team prepared submissions for sentence and made an application for a conditional release order (CRO) without proceeding to a conviction, meaning the client would not receive a criminal record (formerly known as a Section 10). This means that she would receive a bond to be of good behaviour for a certain period of time. We pressed that it was our client was still a young woman with her whole life ahead of her and that she had no criminal record, making this her first offence. Our client was also on a student visa and a criminal conviction would have strongly affected her future in Australia. The magistrate ultimately accepted our submissions and imposed a CRO without proceeding to a conviction, resulting in our grateful client receiving no criminal record.
