Brisbane Magistrates Court
19th February 2019
Overview of Case
Our client was charged with two offences. He was arrested by police for walking into incoming traffic, starting fights with members of the public and obstructing police whilst they were trying to arrest him.
The client had a lengthy criminal history with all alcohol related offences, which included a sentence of 5 months imprisonment for the same offences 2 years prior.
Our client at the time of sentence had spent 8 hours in custody and had instructed our office that he had been absent from alcohol for the past two years.
After carefully constructed submissions, Her Honour convicted and sentence our client to 50 hours community service for both offences. This was an excellent result in the circumstances.
