Using a Carriage Service to Menace, Harass or Cause Offence.
Beenleigh Magistrates Court
Overview of Case:
Our client was charged after sending excessive messages and phone calls to their ex-partner over a few months. There had been 283 phone calls or messages sent to their ex-partner over a 3-week period. The party’s relationship had broken down and the ex-partner had stated she felt she was being harassed. The maximum penalty for this offence is 3 years imprisonment.
Our client maintained that they wished to plead guilty to the offence and was accepting of the facts as alleged by police. They had no previous criminal history.
We provided our client a detailed list of preparations to complete prior to finalizing the matter in court. This included things like a counselling, the men’s behavioural change program and references. Our client completed their preparations as suggested.
Our client was convicted and sentenced to a 6-month Good Behaviour Bond. No conviction was recorded. This was a great result given the facts of the charge.
