Hi. I am going to court on Wednesday for 3 counts of common assault and malicious damage. It happened after a dispute with the neighbour. I was taken to hospital so not charged on the night. The police tried to issue an AVO, but I went down to Melbourne the day after the incident to spend time with family. The police left 1 message saying contact them. I left 5 messages for the investigating officer and she never got back to me. They then rang and told me that I have to go for an interview and be issued the AVO before the court date (I was told that I do not have to do the interview). Just wanted to know if I can get the fact / charge sheet from the cops? If I have to have the AVO issued prior to the court date? Plead guilty and ask for sentencing at a later date? Thanks.
