OutcomeNot Guilty & professional AHPRA license reinstated
During an evening drive to the city, it was alleged that our client was involved in a road range incident.
As a result, he was charged with:
- Stalk & Intimidate
- Common Assault, and;
- Intentionally or Recklessly Damage Property
Our client was a Health Practitioner whose AHPRA registration was suspended awaiting the judgement of these matters. After reviewing all the evidence, including statements and CCTV, it could be seen that the police did not acquire further witness statements and rather dismissed any claims that supported our client.
A plea of Not Guilty was entered on all sequences.
During the Hearing, the testimony from the alleged victim was seen to be false and the Police evidence could not be said to have proven our client’s guilt beyond reasonable doubt.
Accordingly, our client was acquitted of all charges and his licence was reinstated by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.
