Bail Application – Multiple Counts of Theft

This is a case study on a bail application for multiple counts of Theft as well as a charge of Handle Stolen Goods.
Our client was charged with numerous counts of Theft whilst on a Community Corrections Order for the same type of offence. The police made an application to remand the client in custody.
 
The matter proceeded by way of a bail application for multiple counts of Theft at the Sunshine Magistrates Court and Alex Turner acted on the client’s behalf.

With the assistance of Alex’s connections throughout the court, we were able to arrange a Court Integrated Services Program (CISP) assessment for the client at very short notice. This assisted the client in the application for bail.

It must be noted that the client was in the category known as ‘exceptional circumstances’ which is the same category as people charged with offences like Murder. The client was therefore in a very difficult position and was facing a very real risk of being remanded in custody.
 
With help from CISP and through Alex’s advocacy skills, the client was released from custody and the bail application for multiple counts of Theft was granted on very strict conditions.
 
Elements of Theft:

  • The accused appropriated property belonging to another.
  • The accused did so with the intention of permanently depriving the other of the property.
  • The accused acted dishonestly.
