Have you been charged with a breaching offence?
We can help you.
If you have been charged with breaching offences, we are criminal lawyers who can help you.
You might be charged with a breach of a community corrections order or a breach of an intervention order. These are offences that are about not following the order of a Court.
It is important that you seek legal advice as soon as possible to help determine if you are pleading guilty or not guilty to the breaching charges. If you are pleading guilty to the breach charge our lawyers will put the breach in context and explain what happened to the court;
- What were the circumstances that led to the breach?
Often your circumstances can lead to breaking a court order. This could be because of a change in personal, health or employment conditions.
- What positive changes have you made since the order?
It is very important to show the court although you failed to comply with the order, you have positive taken steps to fix your behaviour. This positive material could counselling, rehabilitation or attempts to engage in employment or community activities.
The articles below explain what the breaching charges are about. The articles also explain how you might defend the charges if you are pleading not guilty.
