Criminal Offences

Bail

Bail is defined as the temporary release of an individual who has been charged with a criminal conviction and is awaiting to appear before the Court. When a person is charged with a criminal offence in NSW it is the Police who will initially decide if the person will be granted bail from the Police Station. If the Police are of the view that bail should not be granted, the person will be brought before a Magistrate who will determine whether or not bail should be granted.
