Our 43 year old client and father of 3 who works as a star casino manager was charged with four counts of possessing child abuse material and using a carriage service to access child abuse material.
He was granted bail originally, but after the new bail laws took effect, and when the prosecution decided to add a further two federal charges against our client, the prosecution applied for an application to detain our client seeking that his bail be denied in the Supreme Court of NSW.
The new charges laid against our client also had a presumption against bail, which strengthened the police application to get our client’s bail refused or revoked.
At first the prosecution successfully applied for our client’ bail to be refused/revoked. Accordingly, our senior lawyer Ahmad stepped in and immediately applied for Supreme Court bail. After careful planning and preparation, our Ahmad made lengthy arguments in favour of our client to convince the Supreme Court Justice as to why bail should be granted. Especially given our client has the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. Yet the case is still pending and could potentially take another year or more to finalise given the complexities of the case.
In the result, thanks for Ahmad’s strong will to success and belief in our client, we were successful in getting bail granted in the Supreme Court.
Our client who has a family to feed was able to get on with life to support his family while the substantial criminal proceedings are pending. Allowing for us to better prepare the case with our client out on bail.
