Election and Plea in Victoria

Whether you are released from custody on a bail order, or detained in custody, you will still have to navigate the criminal court system, something that can be extremely daunting to do alone. There are numerous steps to the life cycle of a criminal charge within the court system. Some of those steps you’ve surely heard of and may even have some familiarity with, while others are undoubtedly new to you. Our Criminal Defence Lawyers are ideally situated to explain, and guide you through the process, however until you have contacted our office, there are some things you should attempt to familiarize yourself with.
Most importantly, until and unless you have retained a lawyer, do not forget to attend court as specified in your release documents. Missing Court, even for a good reason can lead to further Criminal Charges and a Warrant for your arrest.
A Criminal Charge has many steps associated with it. The following is a non-exhaustive list of some terms you should familiarize yourself with if you have been put in a position where you must be involved with the Criminal Justice System.
