Section 10, Good Behaviour Bond, Destroying or Damaging Property: DPP v JE

Section 10, Good Behaviour Bond, Destroying or Damaging Property

Facts:

JE was arrested on the charge of destroying or damaging property after he was caught deflating the tyre of a police vehicle. This is a charge that in some cases results in a sentence of imprisonment for 5 years.

Result obtained by our criminal defence lawyers:

After a guilty plea, the court made an order under section 10 (1) (a) that the charge be dismissed without proceeding to conviction. This resulted in a bond of good behaviour for six months, with no record of a conviction. JE avoided a criminal record.
