A client consulted us in regard to a criminal charge against him for “break and enter”. The alleged offence involved a very high-profile Sydney resident who had been the victim of a burglary while he was away. He had been burgled of his expensive motor car and his house had been virtually “cleaned out” – flat screen TV sets, clothing, irreplaceable collectables etc.
Although our client had a criminal record his version sounded plausible. The evidence linking him to the crime was his DNA that police had found at the scene. They had arrested a suspect with the stolen car and had secured a conviction. That person confirmed that the actual perpetrator had hatched a scheme to “frame” our client using his DNA. With some work we were able to show that he could not have been at the scene of the crime and had been framed by acquaintances that he had made while in jail. Prior to the committal hearing we made representations for the charge to be withdrawn and as unusual as it seems the charge was withdrawn.
