Criminal Matters

Being charged with a criminal offence can be a very daunting experience.

There are a number of ways police can charge a person. They include being arrested and kept in custody until you are brought before a court, being given a Notice to Appear, being issued with a Complaint and Summons and/or being issued with an Infringement Notice.
