Georgia-Mae Chung makes a successful submission of no case to answer, in respect of a defendant charged with assaulting his ex-girlfriend at a party

11/04/2024

Georgia-Mae Chung secured the acquittal of a client who was alleged to have assaulted his ex-girlfriend at a party. The defendant was charged with assault by beating.

At the close of the Crown’s case, Georgia-Mae made a successful submission of no case to answer on the basis that the prosecution witness’ evidence had been inconsistent, weak, and vague. She submitted that the evidence, taken at its highest, did not meet the threshold for the offence.

The judge agreed that the case should be dismissed, and the defendant was acquitted.

Georgia-Mae, who commenced her second six at the beginning of April, was instructed by Marley Austin of Cale Solicitors.
