One of our winning criminal cases in August 2019 was related to Section 91K of Crimes Act 1900. Our client was charged under this section as the police claimed that he filmed a person engaged in private act without consent to obtain sexual arousal.
The magistrate made the judgement based on the evidence from the police and cross-examined evidence by our lawyer (Dominic Oliveri). His honour stated that reasonable suspicious is not enough to constitute guilt. He also referred to the case law which stated that even though there was strongly suspicious evidence that the person was there during the incident but there was no evidence to attempt to commit an offence, it would not be able to constitute that he or she would be guilty of the offence. In conclusion, the court dismissed the charge.
Our client is very pleased that he is not guilty for the charge and would be able to continue living his normal life.
