Recent Cases at Central Local Court
The Magistrate in Central Local Court granted bail to our client who allegedly engaged in three separate offences of aggravated break, enter and commit serious indictable offence and intentionally or recklessly destroy / damage property in the Lindfield area in May and June 2013.
Bail was granted despite the Magistrate finding that the police case is very strong because the offences are captured by CCTV footage which depicts our client and the distinctive clothes allegedly worn by our client during the offences were found at his home.
It was a difficult bail application because our client has previous convictions for drug supply and drug possession, and there was a 'presumption against bail' for the current offences.
