Our criminal justice system ensures that you are granted a number of rights. This includes the presumption of innocence until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. A defence lawyer can ensure that you rights are met. They can explain what the offence is and what Prosecution needs to prove before that offence is made out. Even if the offence is prima facie made out, you may have a defence. A defence lawyer can explain to you the prospects of the case and advise you the best course of action to take. They will represent you in court and speak on your behalf to the court, police, and any other relevant body. They can also obtain a range of relevant documents from other parties.
If you are in a watch house you should request the Sergeant of the watch house to allow you to make a call to either a lawyer, a friend or a family member who you should inform where you are and have them contact the lawyer of your choice. It is important that somebody be aware of your whereabouts.
You have rights under the Police Powers and Responsibilities Act to phone a lawyer of your choice. For example, Beavon Lawyers runs a service whereby you can initially speak to a lawyer by phone and then on payment of a fee have a lawyer attend either the police station or watch house depending on the hour and time of day and the availability of a lawyer.
On most occasions you will be taken to a police station in your local area or suburb.
Qp9 stands for Queensland Police Form 9 and is a form that the police fill in when they charge you. It lists the exact charge with a brief description of the facts which they allege against you. The Qp9 is usually picked up at your first mention. You may request that you receive it before this date.
The Magistrate may order that you spend time in custody while you are waiting for the case to be finalised. Alternatively, the Magistrate may order that you be released back into the community on certain conditions during this time. The release is called bail and you must promise that you will return to court for Trial or Sentence. Other conditions imposed on you may be to report to the police on a regular basis.
If you are refused bail in the Magistrates Court you can apply for bail in the Supreme Court. Such an application requires a large amount of preparation and Beavon Lawyers has an enviable track record when it comes to these applications.
The first day that you attend court for the offence is a ‘mention’. This is a short appearance advising the Magistrate or Judge what is to happen next in the matter. It is not unusual for there to be a number of mentions before the matter is finalised.
