Despite what the police might say, being charged by the Police with an offence does not mean that you will be found guilty of that offence. It is also true to say that Police are human and do make mistakes. In some cases they may be bound to take action against someone even though they would prefer not to and in other cases they may be bias or act illegally.
There are many reasons why you may be found not guilty by the court, we have listed a few below:
|Criminal Defence - Correcting a Child|
|Criminal Defence - Self Defence|
|Criminal Defence - Claim of Right|
|Defence of Honest & Reasonable Mistake|
|Criminal Defence - Necessity|
|Criminal Defence - Duress|
|Criminal Defence - Intoxication|
