Success Stories and Publications

Acquittal on Possess Stolen Property Charge

Our solicitor Shirley Casey represented a woman charged with Possession of Unlawfully Obtained / Stolen Property and the matter was listed for trial at Perth Magistrates Court.

The client was acquitted and the property alleged to have been stolen was returned to her.

The client received costs from the prosecution.

Drug Charge Downgraded

Our solicitor Shirley Casey represented a man charged with Possession of Methylamphetamine with Intent to Sell/Supply.

The quantity of the drugs made this an indictable offence with a maximum penalty of 25 years imprisonment and $100,000 fine.

Ms Casey succeeded in negotiating with the Prosecution to have the charge downgraded to simple possession.

Suspended Sentence for Serious Violence Charges

Our solicitor Shirley Casey represented a man who was charged with Deprivation of Liberty, Threat to Kill and Assault Occasioning Bodily Harm.

The man was sentenced on indictment in the District Court of Western Australia.

Ms Casey made submissions persuading the court that a term of immediate imprisonment would be unjust in the circumstances and the offender received a term of suspended imprisonment with conditions.

Aggravated Burglary Charge Downgraded to Trespass

Our solicitor Shirley Casey represented a client charged with Aggravated Burglary with Intent for climbing a wall into a garden before making away with a pair of thongs.

Ms Casey persuaded the prosecution to downgrade the charge because the client had been mentally unwell at the time of the offence.

The charge was downgraded to Trespass and our client received a Conditional Release Order and a Spent Conviction.

Fraud Offences Declared Spent Convictions

Shirley Casey represented a 50-year-old woman who had been convicted and sentenced to imprisonment over 15 years ago for serious fraud offences. The client instructed that she wanted to apply to have her old convictions declared spent so that she could pursue professional opportunities.

Shirley made an Application to the District Court to have the convictions declared spent pursuant to Section 6(1) of the Spent Convictions Act 1988. The application was successful and the client was able to pursue her dream of owning a shop.
