Wounding - Charge withdrawn

Shane represented a young lady in the Beenleigh District Court who was charged with wounding after she stabbed her then partner with a knife.

After meeting with the client, Shane was able to gain her trust and she told him she had been subjected to significant violence at the hands of the complainant. Often, a female who has been subjected to this amount of violence is reluctant to speak about it, but as Shane established a rapport, the client detailed a large number of violent incidents that she had experienced.

Shane then instructed a barrister to cross examine the complainant on the incidents that our client had told him about. As a result of that cross examination the Judge indicated to the Prosecutor that their case was weak. The Prosecutor applied for a brief adjournment and after the adjournment, the Prosecutor discontinued the charge against our client.
