If you are bail refused at the Local Court, you may be able to make a bail application at the Supreme Court.
This will involve a much more complicated process and an extensive amount of work.
The process involves filing a number of documents with the Court and providing copies of those documents to the Director of Public Prosecutions. For the Supreme Court to hear your bail application, you must lodge the following documents:
- A Supreme Court bail application form.
- Written submissions.
- Affidavits supporting your release such as persons proposing the payment of surety or character references.
- A document outlining any proposed bail conditions.
Once these documents are filed, the Supreme Court will hear your application and decide whether to grant you bail.
The Supreme Court involves a very technical and formal procedure. Accordingly, it is crucial that you receive adequate legal representation. The team at Criminal Law Group are very experienced and can make the best possible bail application on your behalf.
