What Happens in Court?

When you are charged with a strictly Indictable matter, or a matter where the DPP elect to have your charge dealt with in the District Court, the case is managed through a process commencing in the Local Court.

On the first mention date the charge will usually be adjourned for 8 weeks for the brief to be served. A further series of short mentions occur prior to the matter, perhaps, being committed to the District Court for trial or sentence. Yes, it is a little complex, however we have the knowledge to assist you with that and prepare your matter for trial and sentence.
