Facts:

AQ was charged with common assault following a domestic incident with his partner. AQ denied that he had assaulted his partner and entered a plea of not guilty.

Outcome:

No evidence was offered by the prosecution in this matter. The charge against AQ was dismissed.

Testimonial:

“I was extremely nervous about my court case. I had never been charged before and couldn’t believe it when my ex girlfriend made this false allegation against me. From the beginning you put me at ease. I always felt like I was in safe hands and you would fight this charge for me. I am so thankful. Had I been found guilty I would have lost my security licence and would be out of work.”
