When the Police or a Court grants bail they may impose certain conditions that must be complied with such as:
You live at a certain address
You must report to your closest police station
An acceptable person must deposit a sum of money
You abide by a curfew
You must surrender your passport
You must agree not to approach any international departure points, such as airports or seaports
You agree not to approach any witnesses involved with the case
You agree not to associate with any co-accused
If you breach a condition of your bail you will be arrested and brought before a Court to explain the breach. If this occurs you may not be given bail again by the Court and could find yourself in gaol pending the finalisation of your matter.
If you, a friend or relative has been refused bail we can prepare a bail application before the Local or Supreme Court and provide strategic advice about when and how the application should be made to maximise its prospect of success.
Talk to us before you talk to the Police so we can advise you of your rights if you have been arrested and charged with a criminal offence.
William Vahl of North Shore Criminal Law regularly appears in these local courts.
