Entering a Plea

If you are charged with a criminal offence in Australia, you are generally required to enter a plea (guilty or not guilty) at the initial Court mention and the matter is then dealt with accordingly. Depending on the seriousness of the charge(s), almost all matters start out in the Magistrates Court, and this is where the first chance is given for a plea to be entered. Before entering a plea, serious and careful considerations should be given to factors including:

  • Correctness of the charges;
  • The alleged facts giving rise to the charges;
  • The evidence for and against the accused;
  • Personal background and relevant history that might be brought to the court’s attention; and
  • Understanding of the charge in question and the penalty that is likely to be imposed

 

Criminal Law Advice & Strategies

An effective legal representative is essential in bringing out the important facts properly. Even if you have been found guilty or pleaded guilty, there are strategies to reduce your penalty or sentence that you might otherwise receive.

It is extremely important to have good strategy in place and be in control of your own destiny.  We give you the best strategy and aim to achieve the best outcome for you.
