Criminal defence lawyers from O’Brien Criminal and Civil Solicitors represented this client in the Local Court. We successfully argued that given our client’s mitigating circumstances, it was more appropriate for him to be sentenced to a good behaviour bond.
Accordingly, the court sentenced him under section 10(1)(b) of Crimes (Sentencing & Procedure) Act 1999 and no conviction was recorded.
