Rostron Carlyle instructed Damian Walsh of Counsel to successfully defend our client who was charged with murder. The murder was alleged to have occurred at the Beachcomber Resort at the Gold Coast in 2012.
It was alleged by police that the deceased man was escaping an assault by two men, one of which was our client, when he slipped and fell 31 floors to his death.
The trial concluded after eight days in the Supreme Court of Queensland in Brisbane with the jury returning a unanimous not guilty verdict, in relation to both murder and manslaughter for both men.
This excellent result was due to the tireless work of our criminal law team over the last two years and eight months. This is yet another example of the quality of work which the Rostron Carlyle Criminal Law team produce every day for all of our clients.
