Criminal Court

Matters working their way though the criminal justice system can take time. Knowing what to expect at different stages of the process can help individuals prepare for their case and deal with the charges against them.

Criminal Charges & Alternative Measures

If you are charged with a criminal offence you will need to appear in court. In some cases it may be possible to have the matter resolved outside of court through the use of Alternative Measures.

Bail

Individuals charged with a criminal offence may be released on bail or may have a bail hearing to argue for their release. Individuals are not held in custody while their matter is being dealt with unless there are good reasons for holding them.

First Appearances & Trials

Individuals who have been charged with a crime will have many decisions to make as their case proceeds to court. Understanding the process can help you prepare for your first appearance and those that follow.

Parole, Statutory Release & Criminal Records

In most cases individuals who are sentenced to jail may be released before their entire sentence has been served. Their release may be subject to a number of conditions and they will have a criminal record.

PLEA can provide you with information to help you understand many legal matters you, a family member or friend may be facing.
