Our 30-year-old client from Tamworth was charged by police with aggravated sexual intercourse and aggravated indecent assault.

He was charged after he informed his church elders that he had sexually assaulted a younger male many years ago. The younger Male victim had a disability which our client was aware of.

Before speaking to a lawyer and getting advice, he voluntarily attended the local police station where he made admissions to the sexual assaults against the victim. As a result, police charged our client which resulted in criminal court proceedings in the Gosford District Court.

He attended our office and spoke to our managing lawyer Tayla Regan who immediately commenced the preparation work necessary. Due to our client making admissions to police voluntarily, our client’s best option was to plead guilty early to get the full extent of the sentencing discount and begin early preparations for sentence. This included a detailed psychological report for court, good character letters by carefully picked referees.

Before the case proceeded to sentence, our team successfully negotiated with the prosecution to drop the charge of aggravated indecent assault.

As a result of thorough preparation and hard work, the Gosford District Court Judge was convinced to not impose a jail sentence against our client, and instead sentenced him to a Conditional Release Order involving a good behaviour bond, with no imprisonment.
