Knowingly Joining or Continuing in an Unlawful Assembly

Knowingly Joining or Continuing In an Unlawful Assembly is an offence under Section 545C of the Crimes Act 1900 which carries a maximum penalty of 6 months in prison.

To establish the offence, the prosecution must prove beyond reasonable doubt that:
