The short answer to this question is no. When you are arrested for a crime, this process is executed by police however they are not the legal officers who then prosecute your matter. The police gather evidence for the prosecution in an aim to convict you of your crime but the physical task of trying to prove you are guilty is that of the prosecutor.

Police must ensure that the evidence they provide to the prosecutor will likely result in the outcome they are seeking and that the evidence was obtained legally and within their police powers. The reliability of the evidence lies with the police who worked on the matter. The police must ensure it is air tight to effect a good outcome. In circumstances like this, it is best to reach out to a lawyer for legal help.

In Criminal Law, Bail refers to a situation in which a person who is accused of a criminal offence is released from the custody of police officers, in exchange for a “bail undertaking”. A bail undertaking usually refers to where a person known to the accused person, provides an undertaking to the Court that if the accused person fails to comply with bail, including any bail conditions, they are liable to pay a sum of money. 

Our criminal lawyers cover a multitude of areas, including more serious offences. Including but not limited to:

Family Violence
Family violence is among the most common cases we encounter, with both men and women subject to institutional abuse. While it doesn’t necessarily entail sexual abuse, in many cases, it does, and sexual assault is part of the Criminal Code. We handle such cases with confidentiality and cautiousness to ensure the best possible compensation outcomes.

Children-related Issues
The children’s court is frequently confronted with issues of child protection, children’s rights, custody arrangements as a result of divorce, parental responsibilities, and more.

Because we understand how far the impacts of such situations can go in the memories of children, we work rapidly and efficiently to establish protective measures against children’s trauma and minimize time spent in a children’s court. You and your children are fully protected with us!

We have a track record of achieving outstanding results when it comes to drug offence charges, ranging from demolishing the possibility of a criminal conviction, dropping charges through negotiations, securing “not guilty” verdicts in court trials, and more.

Our drug offences include commercial drug charges, drug importation charges, drug possession charges, and cultivating prohibited plant charges. We also work with minor possessions of prohibited drug offences, providing you with legal assistance and representation throughout the process!


Fraud is considered one of the most scheming criminal offences, and accordingly, it is punished severely by the court system’s penal code and criminal code. As specified by Australia’s penal code, the penalties can go as high as ten years of imprisonment.

Accordingly, understanding the criminal law adequately and reaching out for professional legal advice to be your intermediary with the criminal justice system is a must. We also cover in forgery, identity crimes, tax fraud, Medicare fraud, and ID fraud.

If your bail has been denied in the Local Court, you may be able to make another bail application if you can prove:

1. There has been a change of circumstance to warrant another bail application, or

2. There is new evidence that wasn’t available at the time of the initial bail application.

Alternatively, you can apply for Supreme Court bail if you have been bail refused. You will need:

a) A fixed address including an affidavit from someone you will be living with stating you are allowed to live there

b) Bail conditions you want and are able to comply with

c) Character references

d) JusticeLink case number for matters

e) If you want bail to attend rehab, you will need to organise your own rehabilitation. You will also need a letter from a rehab facility stating you have been accepted and the date of your admission

Indictable offences are more serious charges than summary offences. Each section in the Crimes Act sets out the elements of an offence and the maximum penalty. However, depending on the facts of the case and the evidence available, the penalty can be anywhere between charges being dropped and the maximum penalty for the offence. It is important that you seek legal advice and assistance to determine how serious your specific case is, regardless of how serious the charge actually is. In many cases, your lawyer may make representations to the police setting out reasons why some or all charges should be dropped and this will save you the hassle of having to go to court or at least avoid a hearing.

There are a number of reasons you could be refused bail. These include:

a) You are accused of an offence that is a show cause offence – you will automatically be refused bail unless you can show cause as to why you should be granted bail e.g. a serious indictable offence such as wounding or inflicting grievous bodily harm (if previously convicted), sexual intercourse with a person under the age of 16 years and you are over the age of 18, etc.

b) The nature and seriousness of the offence.

c) Your criminal history.

d) The strength of the prosecution case.

e) Previous failure to comply with bail.

f) The likelihood of a custodial sentence.

g) Unacceptable risk of committing a serious offence or endangering the victim, individual or community
