WE ARE HIGHLY EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONALS READY TO HELP WITH YOUR LEGAL MATTERS.
The Court Process
The police are obliged to investigate allegations of a criminal offence. In investigating a matter police will gather evidence and if they believe they have enough evidence to charge you with an offence, you may be required to appear at a Local Court before a Magistrate.
The Court system is a complicated process. The type of charge laid will dictate the process to be undertaken. Generally, offences in New South Wales are classified as summary and indictable offences. These offences are dealt with in the Court as follows:-
- Summary Offences: These are usually minor offences such as traffic offences. These matters are finalised in the Local Court.
- Indictable Offences: These offences are of a more serious nature. Some offences may be finalised in the Local Court however the more serious matters, such as robbery, serious drug offences and murder are dealt with and finalised in the District and Supreme Court.
When you appear on the first occasion, you may be required to do certain things. The police may be required to undertake certain tasks. It is the complexity of the Court process which requires expert legal representation.
