After receiving interview advice from us, the client was remanded overnight in the cells and met with us first thing in the cells the next morning at Sunshine Magistrates’ Court. Through cross examination of the police officer who had charged our client and by making necessary arrangements for accommodation etc., as well as calling evidence on behalf of the client, we were able to demonstrate to the court that the client should not be remanded in custody.
Ultimately, it turned out to be a successful bail application for a case of family violence whilst on a Community Corrections Order. We were able to get the client bail when they otherwise might not have been granted bail.
- The complainant suffered an “injury”.
- The accused caused the complainant’s injury.
