Adjourned Undertaking for Contravening a Conduct Condition of Bail

ArrestThis is a case study on a sentence of adjourned undertaking for contravening a conduct condition of bail.

Our client was charged with breaching a conduct condition of bail which saw the police making an application to remand them in custody. The client was unable to have any family members attend court to give evidence as to their stable residence etc. As a result, the client was facing the prospect of spending some nights in custody until these arrangements could be put in place.

Alex Turner acted on the client’s behalf at the Sunshine Magistrates’ Court.

As the day progressed, bail prospects became slimmer and slimmer. However Alex was able to engage in ongoing discussions with the court and with the prosecutors. He thought pragmatically about the situation and did not take a “no” for an answer which ultimately resulted in the client being released.

The matter was to initially proceed by way of a bail application however, in discussions with the prosecution it was agreed to proceed by way of a plea. After hearing the summary and submissions about the client, his Honour placed imposed an adjourned undertaking for a period of 6 months without conviction.

The client was ultimately able to avoid spending any nights in custody.
