Not guilty one count, good behaviour bond for other in workplace sexual assault – Burwood Local CourtJune 2, 2014 Recent Cases
Our client was an elderly medical professional charged with two counts of indecent assault upon a young female employee. We advised our client to plead not guilty to the charges, and after a hearing, one of the charges was made out, and the other was dismissed. We put forward an argument for her Honour to proceed without conviction, but due to the nature of the offence a conviction and good behaviour bond were imposed. We have appealed both the conviction and the sentence to the District Court.
