Bail Application on Allegations of Armed Robbery Involving a Theft of a Lamborghini

This is a case study on a successful bail application for Theft of a Motor Vehicle.

What is alleged to have occured?
The client was alleged to have stolen a Lamborghini while armed with a pistol.

There had been a previous bail application in the Magistrates Court which had been unsuccessful.

What happened at court?
Bill Doogue represented our client at the Supreme Court and the client was granted bail on a $100,000 surety and strict conditions.

What was the result?
The Supreme Court granted bail because of a combination of factors but one very important one was the delay before the client would have his trial. It was conservatively estimated at 18 months. Robert Richter was briefed by us to appear on the Supreme Court bail application.
