Factual Dispute

This is when the Accused denies any involvement in the crime and/or disputes the circumstances surrounding the alleged offending.

It is sometimes referred to colloquially as a ‘flat denial’.

 Some examples of a factual dispute are:

  1. The identity of the Accused is disputed;
  2. The Accused was not driving the alleged speed; or
  3. The Accused denies the damage was caused by his actions.
