Burns victim Dana Vulin has had a weapons conviction related to two cans of capsicum spray found in her home overturned.
A Supreme Court of Appeal judgment yesterday also granted Ms Vulin spent convictions for possessing a small amount of methamphetamine and a Taser.
Ms Vulin, 26, appealed against three convictions from April 26 when she was in hospital with horrific burns from an attack at her Rivervale apartment in February.
She pleaded guilty to all three charges and was fined $100 for each but appealed.
Lawyer Oliver Paxman argued that the police officer who served the prosecution notice in hospital induced Ms Vulin to plead guilty and gave incorrect legal advice.Ms Vulin said she was not given a chance to speak to a lawyer.
