Case Study:

Franklin criminal matter

An Aboriginal Legal Service is representing Franklin in relation to six criminal charges. The first three – unlawful use of a motor vehicle, driving whilst unlicensed, and driving an unregistered vehicle – occurred on the 13 June 2016. The other three charges – committing a public nuisance, and obstructing and assaulting a police officer occurred on the 28 June 2016. All of Adam’s charges were finalised together on the 29 June 2016 by way of pleas of guilty.  As they were finalised together, it should be counted as one ‘Court/Tribunal Service’– comprised (as a sub-set) of six ‘Charges’.
