Section 10 on appeal for verbal threats

Recent Cases

Our client was charged for threatening his neighbour while staying at his partner’s house. We advised him to plead not guilty, as the case was essentially a he said / she said. At a hearing at Balmain Local Court, the Magistrate accepted the complainant’s version of events and convicted our client. We appealed the sentence to the District Court, where our client was resentenced by way of section 10 with no conviction and a good behaviour bond.
