Two counts of common assault: Police v WZP

Two counts of common assault

Assault - Criminal Defence SolicitorsWZP was charged with two counts of common assault and was under threat of an AVO following an extended altercation with his partner. WZP and his partner had been at a pub together when WZP had roughly pulled his partner away from a group of males. After they left the bar, WZP’s partner went to stay at a friend’s place. Later that night, WZP arrived at the friend’s place and pushed the partner during his attempts to gain entry.

Plea negotiation sees prosecution withdraw charges

The defence helped WZP engage in a plea negotiation. During which, it was agreed that he would plead guilty to the first charge of common assault if the prosecution withdrew the second charge and the AVO.

During the negotiation, the defence made strong representations about the efficacy of this course of action. The plea negotiation was successful. All but one of the charges were withdrawn.
