MK was charged with domestic violence related with injury (assault occasioning actual bodily harm) after she whacked the victim across the face during a confrontation. The victim sustained a small cut on his cheek. The police arrested MK for occasioning actual bodily harm (ABH). MK was also subject to an Apprehended Violence Order (AVO).
O’Brien Criminal and Civil Solicitors successfully negotiated with the police before the hearing to withdraw charge of assault occasioning actual bodily harm. The Police accepted the offer and the charge and AVO against MK were withdrawn.
