Criminal lawyers from our firm regularly appear for clients charged with common assault, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and assault occasioning grievous bodily harm. Our principal criminal defence lawyer, Mohammad Khan, has an outstanding record of representing our clients.
The charges can range from simple assault to assault causing physical harm to more severe assaults like intentional injury. Frequently, when filing a charge for common assault, the NSW Police also include it as a secondary charge to more serious crimes. This often leads to clients initially facing multiple charges stemming from a single incident.
In such situations, our skilled criminal lawyers possess the capability to protect against more severe accusations by invoking self-defence or by demonstrating that the authorities lack the evidence to prove that our client is responsible for the alleged harm.
On certain occasions, we manage to convince the police, prior to the case being brought to court, that they cannot substantiate the more serious offence, which enables us to negotiate a guilty plea for a lesser charge of common assault. This can frequently determine whether our client will face imprisonment or, in some instances, escape with no criminal record.
The majority of assault charges are dealt with in the Local Court of NSW. Nevertheless, it is crucial to acknowledge that all assault charges are considered to be of a serious nature. As a result, it is imperative to enlist the expertise of a seasoned criminal defence lawyer when appearing before the Court.
Common assault occurs when a person intentionally or recklessly does something that causes someone else to fear immediate and illegal violence. The maximum punishment in New South Wales, as stated in section 61 of the Crimes Act 1900 (NSW), is a two-year prison sentence. It is one of the most prevalent offences in NSW.
Examples of actions that may lead to a common assault charge are:
