Grievous Bodily Harm Criminal Code Qld 1899 Section 320
Southport District Court
Overview of Case and Outcome:
Our client was accused of committing the offence of Grievous Bodily Harm toward his ex-partner by allegedly breaking her wrist after a physical argument took place.
The maximum penalty for this offence is 14 years imprisonment. Our client denied the allegations and provided our office with his version of the events.
Once we received this information, it was clear that the matter needed to be listed for Trial. The matter was committed to the District Court of Queensland and later listed for Trial.
We provided our client with expert legal advice and appeared on his behalf during a 3-day trial with Counsel. After Trial, the jury found our client NOT guilty of the offence.
He walked out of the court house and was extremely happy with the result and it was clear that we had achieved a life changing result for him.
