Sexual Assault Trial Ends in Not Guilty Verdict.
The Charges: Two Counts of Sexual Intercourse without Consent
We recently appeared in Campbelltown District Court on behalf of a 32-year-old man charged with two counts of sexual intercourse without consent. Our client’s matter had been running for almost two years and had been set down for 2-week jury trial.
It was alleged that our client had sexual intercourse without the consent of the victim. Counsel appearing in the matter was instructed by our Head of Department, Mr Hardy-Clements.
During the trial, the Jury heard evidence from a number of Crown witnesses. After the Crown case had finished, it was decided that no evidence would be called by the defence. As the evidence had concluded, both the Crown Prosecutor and defence counsel made closing submissions, summarising their case.
The Outcome: Not Guilty on All Charges
After a short period of deliberation, the Jury returned a verdict of not guilty on all charges. This was an outstanding result for the client, who had always maintained innocence, and a testament to the hard work of defence counsel and Mr Hardy-Clements.
Our client was extremely happy with the result and with our representation of him over the past nearly two years. Jameson Law is extremely proud of this result.
