Yesterday we were at Mt Druitt Local Court for a hearing involving an alleged assault. The client has been bail refused since November 2016. We were given this matter by Legal Aid at the end of 2016. There was 1 victim and 1 witness that corroborated the evidence of the victim. We were able to get police intel re the victim making 3 previous false allegations to “set up” our client. The client and the witness lied on the stand! We had fun with cross examination, we didn’t call any defence witnesses (despite having 4 for the defence previously) and our client was found NOT GUILTY.
