Attempt to re-enter/enter premises within 24 hours penalty notice withdrawn

Facts: attempt to re-enter/enter premises within 24 hours

BD re-entered the music dance festival “Above and Beyond” at the Sydney Olympic Park after being given a direction to leave. Police allege BD became argumentative and appeared to be under the influence of an intoxicant. BD was charged with attempt to re-enter/enter premises within 24 hours.

Outcome: Case dismissed and no fine to be paid

O’Brien Criminal and Civil Solicitors successfully represented BD at Burwood Local Court on a pro bono basis. After we discussed the matter with the prosecutor and indicated that we had a number of witnesses to call on the behalf of BD, the prosecutor applied to withdraw the penalty notice and it was dismissed. The fine no longer needed to be paid.
