    More Ways We Can Help You

    Bail Applications

    In serious offenses where bail is denied by Police, individuals are held in a Watch house until they appear in the Magistrates Court for a bail application. While the Bail Act generally presumes bail, “Show Cause” cases require individuals to prove why bail should be granted. Conditions like no contact, residence, and reporting may accompany granted bail, and sureties can be required. If bail is denied by the Magistrate, the Supreme Court holds the power to grant it. Making a comprehensive bail application in the Magistrates Court is crucial, as there’s no automatic right for a second application if bail is initially refused.

    Police Interviews

    The right to silence is a fundamental legal principle where individuals have the right to refuse answering questions beyond providing their name and address. Interviews, recorded for use in court, pose a risk: the information given could aid in prosecution later. Furthermore, inconsistencies between a police interview and court testimony may cast doubt on credibility, potentially impacting the case’s outcome. Therefore, assessing the necessity of an interview before conducting it is crucial in each case.

    Parole Applications

    After a sentence of imprisonment, the Court determines whether to suspend part or all of the term or grant parole at a specified time. Courts can set a parole release date or, in some cases, establish an eligibility date, necessitating an application to the parole board for release.

    Most cases do not go to trial. Many cases are resolved through negotiations, plea bargains, or other legal processes.
    Whether your case goes to trial depends on various factors, such as the evidence, the charges against you, and the prosecution’s approach.
    Walker Pender’s Criminal Lawyers will advise you on the best course of action for your specific situation.

    A plea bargain is an agreement between the defence and the prosecution in which the defendant pleads guilty to a lesser charge or receives a reduced sentence in exchange for a more lenient punishment. A plea bargain may be considered if it is in your best interest and the evidence against you is substantial.

    Yes, Walker Pender’s Criminal Lawyers Ipswich can represent you in court. They are experienced in presenting cases effectively, challenging the prosecution’s arguments, and advocating for your rights.
