Fraud charges dismissed at Bankstown Local Court due to unreliable witness

Recent Cases

Our client was a tradesman and owner of a small business who had been charged with fraud. An account manager he dealt with employed by a trade supplies company had already been convicted of fraud in relation to missing goods. The prosecution brief of evidence for our client revealed nothing which knowingly linked him with the scam. We informed the prosecution that we intended to subpoena the account manager to cross-examine him at the hearing. At Bankstown Local Court on the day, the prosecution decided to withdraw the charges and the case was dismissed.
