Reasons for Refusal
Reasons the court may not grant you bail include:
- They believe you are likely to fail to attend court on the set date
- You pose a risk to others if released
- You are likely to commit another offence whilst on bail
- The course of justice may be obstructed, such as witnesses being interfered with
- You committed a serious offence for which bail is rarely granted
The seriousness of your offence, any previous convictions, and your personal character may also be considered during a bail application.
JDA’s experienced bail lawyers can represent you in court and advocate for your bail rights.
Conditions that may be placed upon you when bail is granted can be:
- Attending court on the set date for your trial
- Staying away from certain locations
- Surrendering your passport
- Reporting to a police station on a regular basis
- Not consuming alcohol or drugs
- Making a small monetary deposit
The terms of your bail, if granted, will be clearly laid out in a written bond.
The right legal advice and representation at every step of this process can help create the best outcome for your case and aid you in understanding the terms of your bail.
