Our client was charged with six offences of fraud in the Local Court, namely that she was a part of a group of a family of conmen posing as repairmen who defrauded an elderly gentleman of a substantial amount of money.
The primary evidence against our client was that the head of the group sought to implicate our client in these offences, that a female had been seen in a vehicle of the group’s outside the victim’s premises, and that mobile and other records showed her in the presence of other members of the group at various times.
We successfully attacked the credibility of the key prosecution witness on the basis of his criminal history as well as the unreliability of the identification of the female person described by the victim.
The client also gave evidence to provide her version of events to dispute the case put forward by the prosecution with respect to her association with the group.
The charges against our client were dismissed.
"He's got a very good tactical mind and is good with strategy ... great advocacy and comes to grips with the evidence."
