S14 Application Granted for Serious ABH

The Court agreed to deal with our client by way of a Section 14 Mental Health Order instead of dealing with him under the criminal justice system.

Our client is a man in his early 30s charged with serious assault against his partner of 15 years. Our client made admissions to the police during a police interview that he did not commit the assault but there were extenuating circumstances for his behaviour.

Our principal criminal defence lawyer, Mohammad Khan, after consideration of the case, decided to make a S14 Mental Health application on behalf of our client. Our client was not an Australian citizen and a criminal conviction could result in him losing his visa.

 

We obtained a detailed psychologist report and subjective material in preparation for our client’s application. The prepartion of our clients application took months to prepare including written submissions on behalf of our client.

After reading our written submissions and listening to our oral submissions, the Magistrate at Bankstown Local Court, agreed to deal with our client under s14 of the Mental Health Act.

 

Accordingly, he did not receive a criminal conviction.
