Megan Fletcher obtains suspended sentence for her client

Megan Fletcher, instructed by Oracle Solicitors, obtained a Suspended Sentence for her client (AR) who was convicted of Actual Bodily Harm, Common Assault by Beating and four counts of Disclosing Private Sexual Images without Consent with Intent to Cause Distress.

AR fell to be sentenced under the new Domestic Violence Sentencing Guidelines and each of the offences contained substantial aggravating features including the presence of a child, repeated and sustained assaults resulting in injury and a continued detrimental impact upon the victim and continual threats over a number of months to disclose the images and relevant previous offences.

Megan’s detailed knowledge of the evidence as presented at trial allowed for thorough and persuasive submissions that the sentence should be suspended; allowing AR to continue to provide care for his dependent relatives.
