- Busted at the weekend?
- In the cells?
- Want bail?
- Want name suppression?
- Don't know what to do?
- What do I say to the cops?
This topic is designed to give you instant access to information you may require during the urgency of preparations for your next Court appearance.
You may be reading this yourself if you have been bailed by the Police or, if you are still in custody, then a friend or family member may be reading it on your behalf.
We repeat, we have designed this page to give you instant access to legal information you need to make good decisions. Just see our selected topics in blue below.
You can access all our topics by reading through the Master Index or going to the criminal index from our home page . . . . and the whole Website, with well over 400 topics, is open to you for 90 days - anytime, as often as you like!
But the page you are on now is designed to give you quick and easy access to areas of law that may be necessary for you NOW.
You are entitled to a lawyer paid by the State regardless of your financial circumstances at this point. This is called the Police Detention Legal Assistance scheme. We provide you with a direct link to that Website. The lawyer of your choice, provided he or she is registered on the list held at the Police Station, is paid to come to the Police Station or advise you on the phone. Just click on below for more information.
Most lawyers are charging $220 per hour plus GST so sort out the work you can do yourself even if it is basic preparation.
Bail and Suppression of name and Police interviews will probably be your biggest concerns right at this time so we give instant access to those sites :
Suppression of Name.
You should then NOT hurry things because you will need some time to consider your position, perhaps consult the right lawyer or consider saving money and handling some cases yourself. So we suggest the following sites :
Adjournments - This is the same as a remand. It means postponing the case.
Defending a Charge Yourself - There are many cases you can handle yourself.
We next give you direct access to Acts of Parliament and Regulations because if you have been charged with an offence then that offence will be in an Act or a Regulation.
We provide you with a direct link below to all the updated Acts of Parliament and Regulations. When you click on to this link you should firstly press the button for Statutes and you we will be presented with an alphabetical list. If you are looking for the Crimes Act 1961 push the plus (+) sign beside the letter C and then scroll down to the Crimes Act 1961 . . . and bingo, there it is. It’s easy.
The same process is used if you are looking for a Regulation, although you obviously push the ‘Regulation’ button first.
