Case Study

A professional male is charged with online offences

Our client was going through a traumatic period in his life and turned to online chat rooms for companionship. His behaviour escalated to a point which resulted in him being charged with serious online, sexual offences. We successfully convinced the jury that his behaviour, based on his intention as defined by the relevant legislation, in fact, amounted to a much lesser charge. Furthermore, we convinced the Judge to impose a non-custodial order with the benefit of engaging in rehabilitative treatment, which meant he received appropriate support to get his life back on track.
