Not guilty verdict for Serious Assault

Mr R was charged with a number of counts of serious assault. Terry Morgans conducted the summary hearing in the Richlands Magistrates Court. The police attended upon Mr R’s address in relation to an allegation that by not caring for a dog found wandering in the street he had been cruel to that dog. The client resisted arrest and protested his innocence. The police sought to arrest Mr R and he was subsequently charged with seriously assaulting both police officers involved. He was found not guilty on the basis that the police did not have sufficient grounds nor lawful powers to arrest Mr R without warrant. A subsequent civil action was pursued by Mr R for wrongful arrest. ​
