      Bail Granted for Multiple Contravene AVO Charges at Liverpool Local Court

      Last week Astor Legal appeared at Liverpool Local Court in relation to a bail application.

      Our client had initially been charged with Assault Occasioning Actual Bodily Harm and Intimidation. He was granted bail by police. Shortly afterwards he was charged with contravene AVO.

      A few weeks later he was charged with another breach AVO offence and promptly bail refused.

      His previous legal representatives made a bail application which was refused. His family then came to us desperate for him to be released.

      Our criminal lawyers in Liverpool advised them that we would need to obtain evidence to get over the hurdle of Section 74 of the Bail Act 2013. This involves establishing that either:

      “(a) the person was not legally represented when the previous application was dealt with and the person now has legal representation, or

      (b) material information relevant to the grant of bail is to be presented in the application that was not presented to the court in the previous application, or

      (c) circumstances relevant to the grant of bail have changed since the previous application was made, or

      (d) the person is a child and the previous application was made on a first appearance for the offence.”

      We were able to obtain an affidavit from our client’s wife which set out that she resided in India and required our client to be free. We also obtained medical documents which set out that our client’s mother was ill and required him to take care of her.

      We appeared at Liverpool Local Court and made an urgent bail application on his behalf.

      We were successfully able to show cause why our client should be released, and proposed bail conditions that mitigated any unacceptable concerns.

      In the result our client was released on bail that day and his family were overjoyed.
