      Bail Granted for Sexual Assault Charges Despite Extradition  

      Recently Astor Legal appeared at Downing Centre Local Court in relation to a bail application.

      Our client was charged with sexual intercourse without consent after a tinder date. Prior to police arresting him, our client flew to another jurisdiction to meet his sister.

      Police were unable to locate him and released a statement to the media asking for public assistance in locating him. This was unsuccessful which led to them applying for and being granted an extradition warrant. He was arrested and brought to Sydney.

      In preparation for the release application, we obtained documentation from our client’s sister who confirmed that he had pre-booked his flight. Further, upon finding out that police were searching for him, our client voluntarily contacted police.

      We also arranged for our client to have a residential address in Sydney to reside at and abide by a curfew. He also surrendered his passport to police.

      We appeared at Downing Centre Local Court and our lawyer for the bail application applied for his release.

      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 granted bail.

      A few days later we were able to vary our client’s bail to allow him to return to live with his sister while his case is proceeding through the court.
