      No Conviction for Damage Property Charge

      Our client was a 39-year-old construction manager who was living in an apartment in Sydney. On the day of the incident he returned to his apartment’s parking lot and saw another vehicle in his designated parking spot.

      Initially he left a note on the windscreen of the vehicle. However, when he came back 30 minutes later, the vehicle was still there. In the heat of the moment, he removed the note from the windscreen and scratched the driver side door.

      CCTV footage captured the incident and our client was subsequently charged and given a court date at Downing Centre Local Court.

      He came to us concerned about the impact a criminal conviction could have on him. We immediately got to work by arranging for him to see a forensic psychologist to determine whether he had any anger management issues.

      We also obtained character references which spoke to his role as a manager in the construction industry as well as possible ramifications of a conviction. His partner also provided a reference setting out the possible ramifications for their partner visa application.

      At Court we made submissions seeking a non-conviction. The Magistrate agreed and placed him on a conditional release order without conviction. Our client and his partner were overjoyed at the result.
