In December 2022, our client was arrested by the NSW Police and charged with four counts of Common Assault.
The allegations were made by our clients ex partner, and were alleged to have occurred on different occasions throughout their relationship.
Our client pleaded ‘not guilty’ to the charges.
In October 2023, Hanna Legal represented our client at his hearing. After cross examining the alleged victim about her truthfulness (and accusing her of making up the allegations in order to succeed in family court proceedings), the magistrate found our client ‘not guilty’ of each of the four charges.
This meant that the charges were dismissed our client was then successful in having the NSW Police force pay for his legal fees, as the Magistrate found that the police should never have charged our client in the first place.
