Waverley Local Court – October 2015

Our client was charged with common assault after she allegedly drunkenly assaulted her housemate, in a colourful account whereby our client allegedly threw a cucumber at the complainant at one point. The complainant had to be urged to attend court by prosecuting police, and was clearly reluctant to do so following what appeared to have been a big night. Our effective cross-examination exposed various inconsistencies in her account, and our client was acquitted of the charges.
