Green & Associates Solicitors Experience and Success
Client Charged with $19,000 Fraud – Sentence Negotiation and Successful Appeal
In a recent fraud matter that carried significant financial implications on our client, our criminal defence lawyers immediately set to work, conducting a comprehensive review of the evidence, and exploring potential avenues for mitigation.
Through skilful negotiations with the prosecution, we were able to reduce the charged amount from $19,000 down to $13,000.
The case then proceeded to the Local Court, where our client was ultimately sentenced to a Community Corrections Order for a period of nine months. While this outcome represented a positive step in reducing the impact of the charges, we believed that a more favorable resolution was possible.
With this conviction in mind, our legal team appealed the sentence to the District Court, seeking a more lenient outcome that would not result in a criminal conviction for our client. Our efforts were rewarded with a Conditional Release Order for two years. This result was particularly significant as it meant that our client could move forward without the burden of a criminal record and its associated consequences.
Our success in negotiating the reduced charge and securing a Conditional Release Order in the District Court marked a significant legal victory, allowing our client to put this legal ordeal behind them and maintain their future prospects and opportunities.
