Following an arrest, you may either be released on ‘bail’ or brought before a court for a determination of this very question – should you be released? An interesting question when balanced against the notion of innocent until proven guilty. It is important to speak with an experienced Criminal Lawyer who will be able to assist with particular considerations relevant to the question of bail. Such considerations include the attitude of the Prosecution, whether you need to ‘show cause’, the relevant jurisdiction, and formulating appropriate bail conditions. Bail Applications can often be strongest at the early stages of the matter, and it is therefore important, if you or someone you know has been refused bail, to contact a lawyer immediately.
